Taking it Back

Taking it back is a new body of work dealing with memories and exile. The process of painting remain one of graphic disruption of painterly concerns but the theme is more personal. I was born in Belfast in the 1970s but 79 my family moved across the border to Dundalk. This work deals with the memories of belonging to one place or the other. Maybe a series of what if’s and is this my place?.

And its a long way to Chelsea Hotel too, oil on canvas, 40x40cm
