Originally from Athlone, Dara has been a resident of Galway for 10 years. His studies in Engineering have heavily influenced his artistic style.
His current body of work ‘Emergence’ features images generated using a Pintograph, a custom built, mortorised drawing machine. The machine builds complex compositions by repeatedly tracing out simple patterns. The work references ‘Emergent Phenomena’, which have properties above and beyond the systems they arise from. In the same way the drawings are emergent from the interactions of layers of linework.
