The IMMA Collection is a unique resource which is made available to the public through a vibrant programme of temporary exhibitions and projects. Collection Exhibitions may explore the work of an individual artist, or address a theme or historic period.
During this project we will explore paint, composition and image.
Afghan Tour is an artwork from the Jig Map series. The series explores themes and concepts around contested territories and attempts to navigate the complexity of the contemporary theatre of war, as battlefield expands to battlespace in the information age.
I use imagery from lots of different sources such as art history, TV, media, newspapers, National Geographic, surveillance, maps, archaeology and ancient civilization. As the title Jigmap suggests, I piece these together, like a jigsaw map to create a narrative through painting. Like a Renaissance painting—everything is happening in the same time and place.
