Luke McAleenan - BA (Hons) Fine Art

ordinary things wear lovely wings

Luke McAleenan, an Irish artist, delves into themes of grief through their art. Influenced by their upbringing in a rural Catholic community, McAleenan blends Christian iconography with the inadvertent beauty found in agricultural landscapes. Their large-scale sculptures and installations act as metaphorical bridges, linking the past with the present, while paying homage to the rich history of burial practices in Ireland.
