Acrylic and mixed media on deep edge canvas. 8 x 8 inches. Partly inspired by Centra and the intense fast pace of contemporary life. Also features the corner of a passport that just reads "ach". I found a load of these on the ground near the passport office in Dublin city. What a find!
Acrylic and mixed media on deep edge canvas. 8 x 8 inches. Brush is wired on (bigger items always wired/nailed for safety). Also features a corner of a passport, I found a load of these on the ground near the passport office in Dublin city. What a find! The name of the tune is printed on the side. I use all 4 sides to get the most out of the canvas and because it's good to look at things from different angles.
Acrylic and mixed media on matchboxes. 9 x 5.25 inches. This was fun to make and epitomizes my love of the Irish expressions printed on matchboxes. Includes a contemporary proverb, loosely translated from Irish as = don't give a facebook "like" based on the cover.
Acrylic and mixed media on deep edge canvas. 6 x 6 inches. Cyberpunk princess from Versailles farts shiny silver hearts, if you look closely. Let the wires flow - they evoke the SWISH of her full dress.
Acrylic and mixed media on deep edge canvas. 16 x 16 inches. This is paired with Backwoods Goldfish as it has Brooklyn vibes. Dave's blue jeans are a reminder of the utilitarian origin of this garment. Includes an American dollar coin and earplugs - it's a very noisy city! The metal piece is nailed in, again, for security.
The idea with this painting is that it can be hung on any side - there will always be text that reads the right way up. All of the edges are worked on as well.
Acrylic and mixed media on deep edge canvas. 16 x 16 inches. This painting was made using items found around Brooklyn, NYC. So there's more browns and earthy colours than other NY ones that are more about Times Sqaure and Manhattan generally.
I went there when another painting was in a group exhibiton. I found a good few things on the streets, exciting different energy. I like to include the American Spirit cigarette packets as a reminder of the origins of the States (I think they're taboo now - those packets!). Squashed metal can is wired on for safety - as always care is taken with heavier items. There is another wire that is meant to be sticking out. I noticed that the city was in a constant state of construction and renovation, always becoming. If you look carefully you will find the title in the piece.
