I am an Irish artist, producer/director and writer presently working with a local community in the Shan State of Myanmar on an ecology project on Inle Lake. Together we identified what is affecting the health of the lake and the natural environment around its shores through art and science workshops. The project is connected to thirteen other waterways in China, Russia, India, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Norway, Monaco, Ireland, Canada, USA, Brazil, UK and Ghana.
“When we pollute Earth’s air, land and water we pollute ourselves”.
Through water, wax, resins and other materials on Japanese papers, canvases, synthetic skins etc., I am endeavouring to create works that tell the chemical story of our relationship with Earth’s 98 natural chemical elements.
