I am an artist from Dublin. In 2009 I finished a BA degree in Sculpture in Ireland’s National College of Art & Design (NCAD), gaining first-class honours.

This is my home town, with a compact centre and a sprawling commuter belt. My interest in Irish culture and particularly my native Dublin is typically dealt with in my art work.  My practice is diverse in materials, because it often consists of identifying relationships and making work informed by conversations with the diverse people of Dublin. It is fundamentally sculptural but I also use drawing and video in my work. You will see examples of my work being posted on this website.

If you wish to contact me, I can be reached by email at clotworthyi at


Ich bin Kunstler aus Dublin, Irland. In 2009 habe ich mein Bachelorstudium in der Bildhauerei an der National College of Art & Design in Dublin, Irland mit dem höchste Grad abgeschlossen.

Meine Heimstadt ist auf abgebildet. Es gibt eine kleine Innenstadt und ein Vorstadtgebiet, das ist gewuchert.

    HI Ian,
    I was wondering if it would be ok to put a copy of the picture above ( the one you exhibited at the Cork Cycling Arts Festival) on the Trendy Travle website. Trendy Travel is the EU project that Cork City Council used to part fund the Cork Cycling Arts festival. You probably saw the logo on the posters and darren’s rickshaw.
    We could probably include a link to your website. There is no links page at present but I could ask the website people to create one. I think there shoudl be one anyways!)
    Thanks for any help you can provide!
