Pádraig Spillane works with photography, collage, and object-based assemblies. He explores relationships between appearances of bodily forms and constructed lines of desire. Through use of appropriated imagery and play with visual associations, his works consider how the body is continually being produced and altered. He employs the communicative power of physical gesture, vibrancies of colour, and the flexibility of images to create works performing as gatherings of disruption and appeal. He teaches photography at CIT CCAD, Cork.
