Paddy D'Arcy graduated from Limerick School Of Art And Design in 2012, he has exhibited in Galway, Limerick, Cork and Dublin and is now based in Sample Studios Cork.
His painting seeks to convey subjective moments of heightened perception, degrees of alternate cognitive experience and encounters with the metaphysical and unknown.
Utilizing skills from both traditional and contemporary eras, his paintings are created through a morphing of acrylics, aerosols and oils. He juxtaposes figurative and organic forms in landscapes and spaces that resemble reality closely but where spatial relationship and patterns take on new, enhanced dimensions and heightened forms.
He aims to convey the figures intrigue, and express a balance between unease and overwhelming joy.
