Criminal Assets 2010 - 2017

Large diagrammatical drawing depicts the complex connections of the hundreds of men murdered between 2010 – 2017, as a direct result of their involvement with criminal gangs

The work evolved from dialogues with individuals who were connected to serious criminals in the city and the realisation that I was connected to serious criminal behaviour through my connections with these people.
The work was created for my degree show but has been an ongoing project due to the large numbers of men murdered each year


The work is usually exhibited with a series of moving images of violent acts on Irish streets, alongside carefully planned installations of found objects such as; bags used to transport heroin or the detritus left behind once drugs have been consumed or violence has taken place in public spaces.
