Pádraig Spillane works with photography, appropriation and object-based assemblages. Through these different media he explores boundaries of desires engaging intersections concerning imagery, anthropomorphic arrangements and the viewer. His employment of materials considers gestural potentials and animations of various forms with works performing as gatherings of disruption and appeal.
