"After the Excess", 2009, Basement Gallery, Dundalk

My installations are chaotic compositions of consumer detritus including donuts, cakes, Barbie
dolls, supermarket purchases, fruit and vegetables, baking ingredients, paint, board-games,
sweets, breakfast cereal, fireplace ornaments, packaging, toys, books and other items. The
artwork is always temporary and left to decompose over the course of the exhibition before being destroyed once the exhibition is over. They appear like 16th/17th century still life paintings infected by the debris and temporality of 21st century capitalism.
