Our Art Box Artist of the Week is a throwback to Lar O'Toole, a sculptor and photographer based in Wexford. Lar says: " I am interested in the art/science interface and the cultural and psychological effects of expanded seeing, be that explorations of outer or inner space. I'm drawn to the dilemmas that arise when considering our cosmic significance or insignificance. My recent work and research explores the compression of astronomical distances and timescales relative to the human experience. I have been recently developing an expression of this through sculpture, drawing and photography. I experiment with a range of materials like steel, resins, paper, monofilament, cotton cord and thread. I produce forms that are static and rigid or suspended and kinetic, they evoke optics, astronomical observations and cosmological structures." .
