Upernavik, Greenland.

Artist in Residence, 2008.

A sensory and sentient response to the physical landscape of Upernavik in Greenland. Leaving behind the darkness and coldness of the winter polar-night and moving into spring's midnight sun is transfigurative, in the sense that everywhere becomes illuminated with light. In this series of paintings, transfiguration is found in liminality (Death and Transfiguration IV), a space within ourself, where we see everything as it truly is, as matter becomes transfigured with spirit.

This Art Project was awarded the Artist-in-Residence Award by Upernavik Museum.
This Art Project was awarded a 'Travel and Training Award' from The Arts Council of Ireland.
The series of paintings 'Death and Transfiguration' was awarded a Merit for artistic talent in 2021 from Pinacotheque Museum, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

An Archaeology of the Unknown is a series of on-going work charting an expedition from Sub-Arctic regions through to the Arctic and plays on archaeological tropes of excavation, stratigraphy and psychoanalysis. Journeying in the Arctic is cold and dark, yet illuminating, which I have expressed as a sensory, emotional and imaginal response to the landscape through sculptural-painting, drawings and photography.
