Paul Hallahan: the number called value
How being part of nature effects humanities perception of ourselves and in a world that has a growing interest in the systems we have built, such as computers and networks ahead of our natural world, and how we as humans see a future on an individual level. He is curious about how we see and interact with what is titled art and how this can affect us within the primordial parts of our brains.
Hallahan has always had an interest in how art can transcend the verbal and written languages we use. Hallahan has exhibited both nationally and internationally, some exhibitions include Paper thin walls, Eight Gallery, Dublin (2017), Periodical Review 7, Curated by RGKSKSRG Pallas Projects and Gallery (2017), This is Water, Catalyst Arts, Belfast (2016), Dumbfounded by Nature, Banff Centre, Canada, (2014), STICK UP FIR-TREE, IRISHISE) FSP, Broadstone Studios, (2014), I want to be your Dog, The Glue Factory, Glasgow (2013) and Watching the river flow, Centro de Artes Visuais in Copimbra, Portugal (2012).
