Conor’s work centres on ideas regarding ruin; in form, and in the duration of making. He seeks to play with the idea of the natural and unnatural, through proposing forms which could have been eroded and subtracted by man and nature. He often carves directly into the shapes he casts, as well as into more organic sources such as stone.
As well as carving cast forms, Conor leave others intact, eluding to natural fossilisation, caused alternatively by our industrial processes. Material exploration continues to push these ideas, in exciting and interesting ways.
