The focus in my recent essays has been on the perceptions and experiences of artists and artist-led activities. Longer pieces appear in publications by Onomatopee/Pallas Projects, ACA Public/Askeaton Contemporary Art and 126 Gallery. In 2015, I co-edited Local Authority, a book of critical essays on European public art commissioning strategies, with Dr Daniel Jewesbury, published by Fingal County Council Arts Office. I wrote a contextual essay offering a perspective on contemporary art in Ireland at the start of the 21st Century for Volume 5 of Art and Architecture of Ireland in 2015, published by Yale University Press for the Royal Irish Academy and the Paul Mellon Centre.
