Basic Talks: Pádraig Spillane
Pádraig Spillane works with photography, appropriation and object-based assemblages. Through these various means he explores intersections of desire through imagery, anthropomorphic arrangements, and installation. His employment of materials considers gestural potentials and animations of various forms with works performing as gatherings of disruption and appeal. Recent solo exhibitions: 'What Passes Between Us', Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh, Co. Cork, (2017); 'Shills', 126 Artist-Run Gallery, Galway, (2016). Recent group exhibitions include: 'Naked Truth', Crawford Art Gallery, Cork, (2018); 'ART WORKS 2017', VISUAL, Carlow. www.padraigspillane.ie
