Lost Reception, Location undisclosed, DMC 2011

TAG

Wipe

Spray

I felt odd after painting this piece. It was quite an unusual experience. I found that I began writing parts conversations I wanted to have with people and wiping it off etc I got a lot off my chest that night. I think it was the first time I have had an argument with a wall... sober.

Wiping paint has crossed over into both disciplines.

Welcome aboard the pain train. Just into the 2nd year of my tattoo apprenticeship at ADDINKTION. Wish I could tattoo as fast as I can paint.

Excited to see what response this series would get in Dublin.

A new body of work was complete

Colours, marks, textures, began to surround Missed-Call Girls

My work in the studio began to unfold

Began pushing for new painting techniques

Pencils led to paint

Secured show with Little Green Street Gallery, Dublin

This series of pencil studies progressed to an exhibition idea ‘10 Missed-Calls’

Wanted to refine how I draw female faces after reflection on my time in Dublin….

'Her Redundant Heart' at St Andrews Lane, Dublin. DMC 2011. This piece for Dublin Contemporary: Roadworks is inspired by a story of a heartbroken girl in the streets of Dublin. The DubCon theme 'Terrible Beauty' led me to painting the missed-call, tears, the downcast girls and the Irish rain... all of these floating in a rush of colours and verticals.

cherrypicker arrived, gutted to have to paint over this Solus piece but sometimes these things happen. Sorry boss.

This piece for Roadworks, Dublin Contemporary is called 'Her Redundant Heart'. Inspired by a story of a heartbroken girl in the streets of Dublin. The DubCon theme was 'Terrible Beauty' (Art, Crisis, Change and the office of non-compliance)

Roadworks Lineup. DUBLIN CONTEMPORARY & ANEWSPACE. Still can’t believe my name is on that list and cant wait to see the other work unfold over next few weeks.
