CLOCK POWERED ALIVE ART BY GRAHAM MCNAMARA
Born in 1982, Graham is a self taught artist from Wicklow, Ireland where he lives and works. Graham is interested in utilizing the movement from a clock mechanism to animate a concept in creating art that can feel alive. His creations, blending mechanics into art are a product of his background and passions. A background in engineering with a love for art influenced a seeing of the creative potential in a clock mechanism as he explains here;
The clock mechanisms rotating minute and hour shafts reach out to transfer their energy.
It inspires me creatively to see a concept this movement will serve and make come to life,
allowing this mechanical energy to extend from 'Clock to Art'.
Inspired by nature and expressed through his personal emotions Graham's clock powered
colour changing art has a very real 'alive' presence that compels a regular viewing in seeing new colour
and change in the scene.
