Mike has been working in bronze for the last thirty years and has shown work with many galleries and in most group exhibitions over many years in Ireland and the UK. He has also exhibited in Taiwan’s two main cities and has work in many private and corporate collections worldwide. He has a large public sculpture on the quays of his native city of Limerick, called “The Dockers”.
He uses the human figure as a metaphor to explore and describe the joy and sorrow, the beauty and complexity, not only of the human form but also of the complexity and precariousness of our shared human condition and experience. He uses either the single figure or pieces composed of multiple figures in movement or in stillness to capture what it is to be human, his works are often based the following rhyme;
“We dream, we dance, we heave and tumble, we laugh and cry, we jump to fly”.
