Padraig Timoney "Muammar Qaddafi/Wahid Dinar

Padriag Timoney was born in Derry, Northern Ireland, in 1968. He studied at St Martins School of Art and Goldsmiths College London. Timoney uses a variety of media and materials in his work, including photographs, paintings and installation. Timoney¹s work, informed by the way meaning is constructed in and through art, juxtaposes concepts and languages to create layers of signification which viewers are invited to disentangle. Looking at his work is, therefore, not a passive act but an examination of our own linguistic and visual skills. Recent exhibitions include The Hunter Became the Hunted - Laure Gennillard London (1998), and London Calling at The British School in Rome (1998) and The British Art Show 5 (2000). Padraig Timoney lives and works in Liverpool.
