Emerging Artist in Stranraer
Rory explores our cultural relationship to technology through installation, sculpture, painting, drawing, and moving imagery.
He creates immersive and engaging environments to involve the wider public by using popular culture as a vehicle to connect with viewers.
He was awarded the Young Artist Bursary for the Spring Fling in Dumfries and Galloway and was commissioned to produce sculptural installations for outpatients for the new Royal infirmary. His installation work, Freefall Horizon, was part of an international discussion on art and technology for the European Commission in Brussels. He was also a finalist in the Arte Laguna Prize, Venice.
“This project and its creation highlight again the importance of the ongoing local communities’ involvement, in providing these opportunities to participate, exchange and shape in the shared vision of the public’s future.”
