James McCreary ARE

"I’ve always liked the idea that my images have a certain restlessness about them, a stubborn resistance to pigeon-holing and definition.

They exist on the shadowy threshold of things – always on the point of emerging from – or else returning to – the darkness that gives them life.

It‘s this quality of tentatively approaching definition, of keeping my work open to multiple interpretations, that gives me the greatest satisfaction and simulates, I hope, a powerful imaginative response."

James McCreary was born in Dublin in 1944. In 1973 he joined the Graphic Studio
Dublin Studio to study etching and lithography. In 2004 James left his position as
studio manager there in order to concentrate solely on making his own work.
James is a member of Aosdána, an affiliation of creative artists in Ireland.
