Diaspora

These often stark and brutal paintings have been developed from observational drawings first begun in Australia in 2011 and completed back in Ireland with use of a model . They suggest a gradual but profound loss of identity and are informed by a hugely personal narrative. 

The work evokes an inherent vulnerability and asks us all to question our own façade and what we ourselves may have sequestered beneath.
