Empty Cork City

One of the central elements of my work is the lack of people in it. I started off on this weird theme of abandoned places some time ago by utilizing (appropriating/stealing) screenshots from T.V programs, films, documentaries, computer games, etc… I took inspiration from things like 28 Days Later, I am Legend, Call of Duty, … Continue reading

Featured artist – Nick Gentry

Nick Gentry’s work has appeared over the past two or three years on numerous technology, art and painting websites and blogs – and here we go again.

Featured artist – Boo Saville

It also says her work “looks at the human body through the process of drawing and painting”. Although her drawings are pretty cool -her paintings are something else. Here is a pick of some … Continue reading

Featured artist – Sue Rowe

I’m not sure how I came across Sue Rowe’s art, but it definitely caught my attention. At first I thought the works were painted directly from photographs that may have been ‘posterized’ using photo manipulation software. I was impressed.
