This will be the first time I exhibit work on the island of Ireland! I will be showing alongside the rest of the very talented New Irish Works artists. Looking forward to visiting Dublin in July for the festival.

Under the title #OpeningTheGates, the 13th edition of PhotoIreland Festival presents the most comprehensive overview on the History and Practice of Photography in Ireland to date, running 7th July to 28th August 2022 in various locations, with the main venue at The Printworks, Dublin Castle. 

The main exhibition Images Are All We Have traces the thematic development of the discipline and contextualises the historical background, bringing together the diverse and socially engaged set of contemporary art practices that define Irish Photography today. This survey exhibition on the discipline involves artists spanning several generations, practices, and backgrounds, and will include video installations by Alan Butler and Eamonn Doyle, alongside a screening room presenting a schedule of video works. 

In Our Own Image: The Politics of Place 25 June - 27 August
Very pleased to take part in the exhibition at Photo Museum Ireland

The third chapter of the Gallery’s year-long In Our Own Image exhibition programme, The Politics of Place is a landmark survey exhibition that undertakes a critical reframing of the way Irish life has been represented through photography. It addresses how photographers have engaged with one of the defining obsessions of our national identity – the notion of place. 

Pleased to announce  I have been selected for New Irish Works, 2022. New Irish Works is a triennial project run by PhotoIreland to represent and promote the growing diversity of contemporary photographic practices in Ireland. We want to enrich the Irish ecosystem with much needed new voices, new curatorial approaches, facilitate much deserved new opportunities, and invigorate the Irish photography scene.

I will be exhibiting in the latest edition of Photo50, No Place is an Island, curated by Rodrigo Orrantia. Presenting works by British and UK-based artists responding to the idea of an island. Echoing John Donne’s celebrated book No Man is an Island, the exhibition explores what it means to be an island and its multiple possibilities towards the future.

Artlicks 25 - Monochrome, February 2020
This issue accompanies the exhibition With Monochrome Eyes at Borough Road Gallery, London

With Monochrome Eyes, Borough Road Gallery.  February 2020

With Monochrome Eyes presents the work of sixteen lens-based artists, bringing a focus onto the use of greyscale within contemporary photographic practice. Each artist has contributed one black and white work and one colour work, connected through ideas, negotiations and depictions of the body. In the exhibition these works were displayed in two separated but connected spaces in a gallery bisected by a slatted wall.

Curated by Tom Lovelace with  Eleonora Agostini, Elena Helfrecht, Mahtab Hussain, Ben Jeffery,
Äsa Johannesson, Kalpesh Lathigra, Ryan L.Moule, Martin Parr, Giovanna Petrocchi, Silvia Rosi, Martin Seeds, Senta Simond, Deo Suveera, Esther Teichmann, Paloma Tendero, Simon Terrill

With Monochrome Eyes was published to coincide with the exhibition of the same name, curated by Tom Lovelace in the Borough Road Gallery in February 2020.  In the exhibition these works were displayed in two separated but connected spaces in a gallery bisected by a slatted wall. In the book the works are printed on different paperstocks. The exhibition and publication are part of a larger research inquiry, investigating the continued use of greyscale as a mode of representation, existing alongside, or in opposition, to the technicolour landscape of digital technology in which we are immersed.
