The work will consist of photography, sculpture video and some paintings. The exhibition will be primarily new work but Precious gold art work as inspiration for expanding the concept will be used. Precious Gold will see a sea of fake gold melted into objects, an over the top approach to material use and interrogation of how we perceive the use of animals in this context. Industry in Ireland is in a continuous state of flux our idea of value hinged on our perception of it, this is what I need to examine further. Spark a debate and you could change the world, even just a little bit, after all is that not the job of art but to change the world around us.
