Excerpt From: The Artistic Expressions of an Irish Digital Artist
“This is the last image in this series of fourteen for this book, Creepy Insect Blue. It is the monsters that fly into your dreams, a dragon fly the big bad scary insects and the flying horses following them. I suppose they would be more like nightmares as the other insects are gathering as well. This is probably the time when you are just waking up in a bog of sweat and glad it was a dream and not reality”.
Excerpt From: “The Artistic Expressions of an Irish Digital Artist 1”
“I could not do a book on my digital art work without a representation of one of the most important parts of my life: Being a musician.
But I must say it has also been one of the parts of my life that has at times brought great joy and enjoyment and then on the other side it completely disorientated me at times as well. It sort of fragmented my life with short travel episodes and I call them that because that is what they really were at times. Bands, no bands, playing on my own, writing, recording, doing documentaries, giving it up altogether and then back playing again on a plane to some exotic resort like Lanzarote, a month later. It has been a bit of a roller coaster to say the least”.
An Excerpt from The Artistic Expressions of an Irish Digital Artist
“This image has two perspectives, portrait and landscape. It is an image of ancient times when people would be looking up to the Gods. There is one image of someone looking up and then there is also someone looking down that is maybe answering the request”.
Excepert From: The Artistic Expressions of an Irish Digital Artist
“This image is a description in my mind at least, of someone who has korsakoff psychosis. This, is also referred to as a wet brain from drinking too much alcohol, is found in chronic alcoholics. The brain is flooded with alcohol and attacks the brain cells and completely distorts the whole view of life, short term memory, gone. I’m no doctor. Is is like a form of dementia”.

The Flow Of Life: When I started off working on this image I started from a blank canvas. I was trying to get a description of the flow of life onto the image. Now I am sure when people stand and look at this image in a gallery they would probably be saying to themselves, what is that all about? Or they may just stand there and enjoy it as a digital art piece.
Freedom: Why people have to get up at seven o’clock in the morning beats me. I would rather stay up most of the night and get up at 12.00 o’ clock in the day. But everyone I speak to except musicians, DJ’s and people who work in what is called by the [so called “normal people”] unsociable hours, think there is something seriously wrong with me. Maybe there is, or maybe it is them there is something wrong with. What would happen if musicians and DJ’s were getting up at seven in the morning and going to bed at nine in the night, how would, the [so called normal people] like that? No late night entertainment.
Excerpt From Book: “The Artistic Expressions of an Irish Digital Artist”.
“This image took me a while to get it right in perspective, to incorporate the characters as I wanted to display them in the image. We live in a world of reproduction and without which nothing would exist. But the orientation of the legs open here, they are there to show a gaping female stance but it is not to represent a woman it represents the mother of us all which is the world itself”.
Excerpt from book:The Artistic Expressions of an Irish Digital Artist
“Pain has this way of inflicting itself upon my life to show me there is something I am doing or something I shouldn’t be doing to change situations. Change doesn’t come easy to me or most human beings in my experience, we are creatures of habit. Being in the transition period can be completely and utterly emotionally disturbing in some situations”.
It is actually about hope and growth through the pain.
This image has been etched onto glass by:
Ruth O Connell – ROC Design – Kinsale, Co. Cork.
A superb Irish designer in Glass.
“Glass is an exciting vibrant medium to work with, whether creating patterns and pictures with glass shapes, or making more detailed images by adding paint, each has its own rewards”.
Here is a short description of the “Colours In The Morning” image in the exhibition.
Is just a layering of colours representing waking up and the stages I go through before I am ready to take on the day? You will have to make sense of these colour stages yourself.
This is only what I had in mind it could represent just a beautiful colored image on any wall really. I hope you enjoy it.
There has been a lot of interest in this as well as all the other images over the past few days with several offers to buy. But I am going to wait for a few weeks as I have had some international and national interest in possibly hosting this unique DIGITAL ART exhibition in other locations.
Here is a short description of the “Looking Forward” image in the exhibition.
Looking Forward – The idea in my mind as this piece of art developed was that as you look forward there is actually no place to look. The future stops at one place all the time, “NOW”. That is the barrier and it has to be for us because it is the only place we human beings can physically exist. Looking at the image you can see this depicted in front of the square face represented by a block crashing into and rebounding off a wall. But there is actually no physical wall; it is a wall of time. It is not like a mirror looking back at you it is only in your head, there is actually nothing there, and time has stopped at that point.
