Dominic corrigan Artist Bio:

My recent work is the product of using engaging shapes juxtaposed over multi-layered painted structures. In the final compositions I am attempting to create something bigger than my experience visual experience by adding what I perceive as my emotional experience. The bright colours, humming as though alive, like a speeding car with the traffic lights bleeding into the background. I have tried to mesh urban shapes, city life, fog, noise, the hustle and bustle with the feeling of the streets, the tensions, the panic, the stress and discordant confusion that comes hand in hand with career-driven ambition. Since I was awarded an honours degree from the Sligo Institute of Technology in 2009 I have been living in Sligo, on the West Coast of Ireland. In most aspects my immediate environment could be classified as the polar opposite to that of a major city - the landscape is surrounded by gently rolling hills and the pace of life is slow. But given the media-driven global environment that we all live in I am trying to investigate "the media city" as an idea. It is the city we all now belong to, a media-created metropolis built on the foundations, the networks of world media-fuelled institutions such as Facebook or Twitter. This recent collection is an outburst from my romantic imagination, trying to source the erratic, impulsive structures that jut against the skyline of this media-made imaginary city. Dominic Corrigan
