Alan Raggett (b.1977, Kilkenny, Ireland) is a visual artist, currently relocating from Dublin to Kenmare, Co. Kerry.
He is a fully committed and energised professional with a strong track record as a practicing artist, art collections coordinator and project manager, working for 19 years in the arts industry in Ireland, alongside curators and other artists to bring exhibitions to domestic and international audiences.
Working primarily in oil paint, Raggett’s work is ambitious, original, and distinctive. It deals mainly with the abstraction and retelling of the source image. Images, found and self-documented, are retold by means of collage, rephotographing, cropping and manipulation. These manipulated images become the starting points for his paintings where he explores ideas of repetition, contemporary landscape, and storytelling.
He has exhibited regionally and nationally, and his work is held in private collections worldwide.
