Iremonger: Born 1983 Ireland, studied painting at: ’National college of art and design’ in Dublin.Moved to Berlin 2008.
Maid of all works for the efficient processing of junk, external and internal.Paintings: mixed media congealer of compositions dealing with: Power,Evolution,Sex,Death, Englishness,Puddings,Nature,Prehistory,Witches,Trees,Menial labour, Stately homes,Landscapes,Old Masters, french fancies.Emphasis on drawing with layers of collage textures and super-natural hues.Some print elements using hand made process. Writer/illustrator of : BIG WIND IN LITTLE CRANGLE-KNOCKER, a book for children of all ages, completed August 2017, concerning a giant pair of buttocks in a tree, and: ’WHEN IS IT MY TURN TO POOP?’,a story about a boss who steals his employees toilets.Right now: engaged in the last rites/first struggles of ‘COOKERY FOR THE UNEMPLOYED: time consuming recipes for the useless eater’ -a slim volume that bites off more than it can chew, due January.The thread that unites all this frenzied painting, writing, illustrating is a struggle to illuminate uncomfortable mental furniture and rearrange it.You still bark your shins against the corners, but at least its in ‘pretty colours’, and you can see it from ‘a different angle’.
