Pádraig Spillane

‘All image surfaces are ripples of thoughts and forces that shape and comprise contemporary experience.'

- Pádraig Spillane

Our SATURATION spotlight series continues with Pádraig Spillane, an artist, educator, and exhibition-maker who works across image making and installation.

Paradise Transmission (2019) and What was lost was never there (2021) are among the five works by Spillane featured in SATURATION. The artist considers ‘how images function in shared and private realms by taking them apart for reassembly and re-presentation.’

Spillane’s interest in the construction of images leads to a searching or questioning of how they function as ‘social and desire-loaded affective structures, tracing the networks that create spaces to be with images.’
