Untitled etching 1996
‘Untitled’, etching, 20 x 34cm,1996

For a period of about ten years after graduating from the NCAD (1993) my practice was primarily focused on drawing and printmaking. Exhibitions included several solo shows at the Green on Red Gallery in Dublin and at the Yanagisawa Gallery in Saitama, Japan. As a member of Graphic Studio Dublin I helped conceive and organize major printmaking exhibitions at The National Gallery of Ireland and at the Chester Beatty Library. In 2004 I co-curated (With Richard Gorman and Toshiaki Yanagisawa) an exhibition of Irish and Japanese printmaking for the Yanagisawa Gallery, Graphic Studio Gallery, and The Model, Sligo. After 2004 my engagement with printmaking became more sporadic as my interests in other areas expanded. I have been a member of the Black Church Print Studio in more recent years and involved in a number of shows with them. The slideshow has a selection of those earlier prints, along with images from my exhibition ‘Phase’ in 2012, and a few from 2013.
