Continued Creativity amidst Adversity

This article was published yesterday in the Irish National Newspaper, the Sunday Business Post.
It tackles certain issues surrounding the economic downturn and how that might be affecting artists. Myself, along with words from Robert Ballagh, Oliver Sears and Noelle Campbell Sharpe talk about our personal, and in some cases very different experiences and interpretations around these issues.

Irish Artist Robert Ballagh and gallery owner Oliver Sears seem to be coming from the same place as myself. I make the point in this excerpt that the market during the boom had a controlling effect on the output of many artists and Oliver recognized the same curve or trend.

I would hope that you will be able to read the full article I was asked to composed entitled ' Continued Creativity amidst Adversity', in the near future.
