As an autistic person who has newly reconnected with art, I wish to use my art as a way to help others, from all walks of life, to connect with art as well. I wish to use my art as a way to show how autistic people connect with the world, and all its creatures, in many beautiful and unique ways. I will do this through exploring the world around me and using its many vibrant colours in my works.
As part of my work I like to explore connections, whether it is connections with colour, plants, animals, or the people around me. My ‘special interest’ as an autistic person, has always been animals, their rather unique characters, and how they in particular experience the joy of the world. I feel that, in many cases, autistic people see the world in such a way, but are often overwhelmed by social pressures and modernity.
Animals, and the quiet places in nature are what allow us to reconnect to the world, and it is these connections, and why we should all engage with them, that I wish to explore.
I’m a creative designer and mainly paint murals around the country for a range of clients and communities. I enjoy adapting my painting style between graffiti characters through to photorealist portraits and signwriting, depending on the brief that I’m working on.
Dublin Inquirer is an member-supported newspaper with original stories about the city.
I help companies start using automatic translation technology (MT); from learning the essential concepts to choosing the right technology, training their staff and language teams, developing an MT program and deploying it into their existing workflow environment.
I am a part-time photographer, tourist guide and (final year) mature student. And an “AOP” as well.
Aoife’s work explores the body. Using a mix of lens based media and drawing she creates interactive situations, usually where the artist and viewer are present, to challenge physical, emotional and mental boundaries or perceptions.
Aoife is interested in the bodies response to the outer world. The conscious and sub conscious behaviors that are both individual and collective. How we internalize information, where we hold this energy in our bodies and how we project it back into the world.
Audience participation is key to most of her work. She sees art as a platform to examine parts of herself in the presents of others. The goal is always to connect with the viewer and encourage them to feel open, included, expressive and adventurous about bodies in art.

Helen Mac Mahon is an Irish artist currently based in Dublin and exhibited in Ireland, Europe, the US and Asia. Her work takes the form of installations, sculpture and photography that explore light and perception.
“My practice is concerned primarily with the phenomena of light, movement, perception and space. The work strives to observe and reveal the ecosystem that exists between the viewer and these intangible elements that exist in a perpetual state of transformation. Changes occurring in each facet has a perceptible impact on others, revealing previously overlooked properties and characteristics.
My investigation of these elements is experimental in nature, and this exploratory process is as important as the finished piece, the unpredictability of the techniques often being key to discovery. I use commonplace materials, such as light, glass, and lenses that have the potential to act in surprising ways, distorting and obscuring the very things it is their function to reveal. Each component acts as a catalyst, bringing to light unseen potential in the simplest of materials. Maintaining the integrity of the materials is also important, so the viewer is allowed to experience the everyday objects in new and often unexpected ways.”
