The work is primarily figurative and conceptual, using either direct cement method with wire armature and ferrous materials or casting from clay.
Engraved symbols, text; tattoos, and pigmented cement are incorporated.
The figures animate persona and attitude; the intricate balance between outward behavior and the internal narratives we all share. I attempt to make a visual representation of the inner psyche with all its complexities.
I have worked as a government-sponsored “Artist in the community” in Ireland, taught ceramics to young adults in Phnom Penh, and facilitated a cement workshop in KCAC, Kathmandu.
Having lived in countries as diverse as Greece: Cambodia and Malta, I returned to Ireland after 17 years in July 2019 to start my next chapter.
Art 4 You is essentially ‘artist owned’. Run by artists for artists. Historically, it is very difficult as an artist to promote your artwork. Hiring expensive galleries and paying extortionate fees. Art 4 You allows exposure for the artists and the customer buys it from the artist.
Artists register and upload their works of art to the site and once a customer purchases the artwork, ships it. We are sure you will enjoy your experience on Art 4 You – as a customer and artist. Whether you are a serious collector or just curious, you will find works by a plethora of Irish artists here. Thanks to the internet, art has become more accessible to everyone and is no longer the preserve of an elite. If a painting or sculpture speaks to you then go ahead and buy it! You don’t need someone telling you whether it’s art or not. We provide highly detailed images of paintings so you can meditate on them before you buy. Why go for a print or reproduction that is hanging on the walls of thousands of homes when you can have a unique, original piece that speaks to you and you alone?
Buy from us and you are supporting the Irish art scene. All our artists are genuine talents from up and coming to established creators. Buying art from foreign countries can be risky. You might receive a cheap reproduction or nothing at all. We take the risk out of buying online. We oversee the entire transaction from purchase to having the piece delivered directly from the artist’s workshop.
Our community of painters, sculptors and photographers are eager to show their wares so go ahead and take a look around the site. We are confident that you will find something that will absorb you and it won’t break the bank to buy. Once you find something that awakens the muse in you, it will be a part of your life forever: there will be no end of pleasure to be gotten out of it.
So, if you are looking for a place to buy original Irish art by professionals you’ve found it. And if you are an artist looking for a place to sell your wares, join our community of creators and get selling today.
