Peter Monaghan

 

A native from Ireland, Peter Monaghan had his first solo show in Dublin in 2002. Since then he has garnered attention for his three-dimensional wall-mounted work and architectural installations. Monaghan uses dowels, wood, plexi and other materials on wood or wall supports to create intriguing colorful constructions and serial assemblages. The works become activated as the viewer shifts his or her position, with color interplays and the illusion of movement delivering changes in their appearance. An award recipient, Monaghan has worked on numerous public commissions and architectural collaborations and has exhibited in Europe, Asia and the U.S.
