Visual Artist

Paul Rosser

My work records and documents the structures and patterns of human Interaction with our environment by isolating the three tonal frequencies of Anthrophoney sound. Anthrophoney is the sound of manmade or physical interaction within a soundscape. Isolating its three key tonal frequencies the work makes the viewer aware of the sounds they make when present within a space but not often heard in isolation. These sounds are most prevalent when we interact with public space making the viewer’s participation and aural experience or lack thereof central to the work. Space is an instrument played in time by those who inhabit it, a collective experience of sound, time and interaction, framing the sound and orientation of the work differently each time.

Steven Maybury | A Rhythm Exposed (Routines: 5-6)

MART curators Matthew Nevin & Ciara Scanlan are delighted to present the exhibition A Rhythm Exposed (Routines: 5-6) by Steven Maybury, kindly supported by The Arts Council of Ireland.

Preview: Thursday 11 May 2017 @ 6pm

Location: The MART Gallery, 190A Rathmines Rd, Lwr, Dublin 6.

Runs to: 8 June 2017

Open: Tues-Sat: 1-6pm 


A Rhythm Exposed (Routines: 5–6) represents the artist’s travel and conversations, combined with a curiosity into Buddhist doctrine concerning the three marks of existence. Focusing on the characteristics of Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta – Paliwords for impermanence, anxiety or suffering and non-self. They are used here as a reference to questions of ­­interest, concern and ritual. The three characteristics are common to all forms of existence.

This exhibition is part of the artist’s ongoing Routines series. In this series, which began in 2016, drawing is used as a key conceptual tool for the artist to examine obsessions in archiving, ownership and preservation and invites contemplation of the meticulous use of ink, light, and time on the aesthetic of the artworks. It is a continuous process of assembling and making, informed by reactions to the artist’s personal encounters.
