Nicky Carey

I was born in Dublin Ireland and graduated from the National College of Art & Design in Dublin in 1997. I have had several exhibitions in Dublin & Belfast since graduating my work was featured in “The Buyers Guide to Irish Art” as an up and coming emerging artist in 2000. I came to Brisbane Australia in 2007 and have been featured in a number of exhibitions and attained several awards since arriving.
I work in numerous mediums including painting, print making, charcoal and pastel drawing, and sculpture.  Some of my works also incorporate my poetry.
My work delves into a world of expression, moving from the conscious right the way through to the non-conscious. I try to investigate the vast pool of the real & imaginary with an approach that is highly emotional. In the works I force an interaction of the two and bring the realm of the night or unconscious into the world of the conscious through visual poetry
