INVESTIGATIONS

APR 25TH - MAY 25TH

DIARMUID CORKERY

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is predominantly inspired by the effects of UV light on various materials. Certain surfaces such as bright plastics or metals will glow under UV light, materials which are found commonly in the household environment in the form of cheap consumer goods such as toys or various types of paper. This is most apparent in a darkened environment but many works in this show also focus on objects dimly and subtly glowing in the midst of strong natural or unnatural light. The subject matter makes reference to the artificiality of both light and certain materials as well as suggesting more sinister aspects due to the UV light’s associations with forensics.
