“While there are copious political, spiritual and social narratives that can be explored and discovered within the work; it an internal, emotive entity that is examined in each painting. Each painting is created without direct preconception but with a compound memory of personal experiences, art, text and music. Throughout the work questions or subconscious realisations of pure feeling of our own being and those who we encounter prevail. The omnipresent, ambiguous identities and their relationships change with each new encounter you have with each work, providing a live theatricality that is resonant to your own journey. “ Eamonn B.
