Pádraig Spillane works with photography, appropriation and object-based assemblages. He explores associations and interplays in imagery with the affects that appearances activate. His employment of materials considers gestural potentials and simulations of various forms, with works performing as gatherings of disruption and appeal. Pádraig lives and works in Cork, lecturing at CIT Crawford College of Art & Design.

Title: From Altered Light, 2017, collage


From Altered Light collages images from a mid-twentieth century science journal and a mass-produced nature book. Juxtaposing manipulated inversions of a solar eclipse and a wildcat, the work explores how scientific and nature documentary imagery have impacted our understanding of the world.
