About the artist

Richard makes work for galleries, museums and public spaces. Hovering between notions of representation, narrative and abstraction, it ranges from large-scale installation, psychological encounters and intimate listening experiences.

His work has led him to make numerous listening trips to significant places for the ear; from Pythagoras’ Cave (Greece), the border crossing from Turkey into the EU to tracing the story of Melkorka (an ancient Irish Princess) across an Icelandic landscape. His work carries an intuitive depth and when exhibited draws out the relatively silent and various histories of sound-making and listening.

Richard lives and works in Wexford. His work has been supported by both private and public bodies and has been exhibited internationally. In 2018, he received a solo show at MOCA London, featuring as part of Culture Ireland’s national GB18 programme which brought leading Irish art to the UK. Presently, his work features as part of SLEEPERTOWN, an innovative, mobile public art programme.

Here he is currently exploring sound, listening, and digital technologies within both private and public spaces/places. This is part of an Arts Council funded, online residency with Echoes Labs.
