From Westport to Porto

Some recent pieces, Communication Unit V2.5 and V3.3. Ì made these during my last days in my studio in Westport, Ireland. I am now 2 weeks in Porto, Portugal in an art residency with 3 other artists. I have no strict plan for work here, I'm still exploring the city and getting inspiration from it. I'm starting to collect found objects and will hopefully be making new pieces from them, stay tuned!

'The Bog Times' and 'Reach The Peak'

Two more paintings from the exhibition. 'The Bog Times' is acrylic on wood and 'Reach The Peak' is a more experimental piece with found objects from beach walks.

Lesotho

'Lesotho' I gave this painting to my parents for Christmas. We spent a few years living in Lesotho in the early/mid eighties. This is an example of a rondavel house, they are usually made from materials found in the local area. I also became obsessed with swifts last summer and learned a lot about them, amazing birds. Happy New Year everyone and thanks for all the support in 2015 :)
