Member of Cork Printmakers is Ireland-based Printmaker Shane O’Driscoll who’s screenprinted work began whilst he studied Visual Communications. Throughout his work, O’Driscoll enjoys creating abstract compositions using bright coloured shapes and textures creating his own language by using two elements.
The element of chance is an important part of the print process, as the paper is moved and turned when printing to make his compositions. The hard line shapes are balanced against hand torn pieces, pencil lines and ink markings that are scanned and altered during the print process. His artwork has also taken on forms beyond print to window installations, paintings on buildings and to the farmyard, where he has painted on old disused farm machinery. In addition, O’Driscoll has exhibited his work nationally, internationally and in The National Print Museum of Ireland.
