Moss Gaynor is an acclaimed emerging sculptor from West Cork, Ireland. Over the last number of years he has exhibited regularly in Ireland in both private gallery spaces and regional Art Centres. His work is also held is in many public and private collections. For this first UK show (September 20-October 11, 2019) at the ICC, Hammersmith Moss has created a new body of work which incorporate a diverse range of methodology and materials.
Moss works primarily with ferrous and non-ferrous metals, often combining the base material with other media such as stone, wood and found objects. It is the ever-changing dynamic of West Cork, where land meets sea meets sky, which provides an endless source of inspiration for his work.
While the natural world may be the catalyst, it is his interest in the manmade world of architecture and industrial design that informs much of the aesthetic of the finished piece.
Within his work there is an underlying social commentary on how consumerism has led to a surplus of unwanted material and the effects this has on our society
