"My art practice explores ways in which the social and environmental chain of effects from the past follow us into the present. Central to my studio practice is the transformative process of mixed media assemblage and photomontage that allow for new associations to be made from fragmented clues found in museums, photographs and archival material. I am particularly interested in the ramifications and legacy of the Australian colonial settler culture. My works explore the intersections between nature and culture, history and memory to imagine other ways of knowing the past and how it shadows us in the present." -Sue Kneebone, Australia

Conor Harrington - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
Conor Harrington is a street/graffiti/figurative/painter based out of Cork, Ireland. “A painter first and foremost. If you asked me that 10 years ago I would have said a graffiti writer but now as I get older I’m trying to shake off all those labels. It’s a strange position for a lot of us these days. We come from graffiti and street art but now we want to move beyond that. That's why I like the term post-graffiti a lot."

His reverence for masters of old is apparent in his depiction of the human figure, which he uses as a vector for hidden stories, delicate emotion, and finding truth. His affinity for people-watching also informs his paintings, collecting glances, gestures, miens and hints and channeling them through the canvas for the viewer to share in the experience.
