Early Work 1986 - 1989

Tulfarris Art Gallery, Wicklow; United Arts Club, Dublin; Monaghan County Museum | 1986 - 1989

My first exhibition in the Rubicon Gallery Dublin was in 1990. The paintings were based on a period of time spent in Wales - around the Sellafield Nuclear Plant. I likened the chimneys to the underworld, imagining Orpheus’ visceral response upon seeing evidence of the underworld and realising that entering it was his destiny.
