My artistic concerns are to do with constructs of masculinity and how they intersect with sexualities, working-class identity, and recollection of memory through materiality. Using my lived experience with these subjects, I explore themes of hauntology, psychogeography, depression, and the presence of absence in portraiture. Working within this realm I have developed an interest in architectural photography which is informed by living in Dublin and watching its architectural uniqueness crumble away, but also by the works of Patrick Kellier, Guy Debord, JG Ballard, and Mark Fisher. My intention is to create artwork that inspires emotion and provokes thought, to defy the limiting perspective of society on working-class people, and to use my work as a reflection of the supposed real/real world.
