The final pieces offer an utterly unique viewing experience and mark the appearance of an arresting new voice in Irish fine art. Long-listed for the Saatchi New Sensations Award "I have constructed a practice that explores painting as a work ethic… I am interested in the time spent by the viewer, in front of the canvas; I wonder what they think, and if they consider their time spent as worthwhile."—Eóin Francis McCormack
