›Anger‹ is a series of video portraits that capture the essence of the emotion with a raw reality that is present throughout his body of work.
»Anger is an emotion we are all too familiar with but one that is most raw and concentrated during the formative years of our lives. This video doesn’t seek to question the source of our anger, rather to capture it in is most undiluted form. Between the lines, it is obvious to see what we are dealing with, but only for a split second. In emphasising the act, which is nothing more than an outburst, but by highlighting it I have exaggerated the feeling reducing it to its essence. Sound is also an important part of the installation to increase the feeling of discomfort in the viewer and to aid the visual in a more dynamic way. These pieces have been treated like photographic stills, the movement is slight and flowing, never changing in emotion: I want to capture and express this raw and powerful moment in the most explicit way.« Niall O’Brien
