For decades I’ve been entralled by the detailed work of monks, who crossed their eyes in order to focus on the minisciule detail when creating, the freehand and mathematical lettering of celtic manuscripts & the older written language of Ogham.
The many Sean Fochail, wise sayings and phrases that flow freely though Irish speach, folklore/ history & written language. As a designer my studies of these have been most influential & as an artist inspirational.
As a Graphic designer, I often develop lettering that is unique to a particular business, organisation or individual. Inspired by Celtic design & Irish medieval manuscripts, experimenting with colour, shape and space.
In the WallART I use these typeface to express & visually interpret Proverbs, Seanfhocail or Inspiring phrases. Sometimes the words may be evocative of a time, place or conversation.
That idea may then be incorporated into the interpretation of the words. The transparency of the perspex frame allows the graphics to sit within their environment.
