Luke Reidy is an emerging young artist from the West Coast of Clare and currently based in Cork City. He graduated from GMIT CCAM with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art (Printmaking) and was awarded the Emerging Artists Bursary Award in 2018.
Luke has always had a fascination with contemporary designs and in particular he loves the simplicity and balance they suggest. Through screen-printing Luke rebuilds these structures using simple shapes and overlapping transparent layers and colours. His architectural structures are broken down into the simplest forms folding and unfolding, these planes orientate in space as the flat image becomes almost three dimensional. Luke’s use of colour highlights the depth of these unique forms and gives them visual energy. His vision is to create work that is clean and crisp that can complement modern-day interiors.
