The drawings below are from the 2013 – 2014 series of work entitled “Plastic Landscapes”.
The paintings, drawings and photographs investigate image deterioration and manipulation,
and the properties and possibilities of acrylic paint. This series of work explores
the environment of Iceland. Alien looking terrain like Iceland creates an atmosphere
of ambiguity and unease. By using the Icelandic setting the work subverts one traditional
form of the landscape which is often associated with tranquillity and displays something
that unsettles the viewer. This series of paintings was displayed in Haires Degree
Show in 2013 and in his Residency Exhibition at the University of Ulster. More info
