Highly inventive and idiosyncratic, Paul Mosse uses the natural world around him for inspiration. Drawing is at the heart of his work and is the foundation from which all else follows. There is no denying the enormous physicality of many of his works. Often, individual pieces are immense, heavy and unyielding but always full of personality. In his 2012 Butler Gallery exhibition MAKE. BREAK. MAKE he exhibited Untitled (Pink), 2011 which was notable for both its complexity and delicacy of hand. The work reflects Mosse’s love of drawing which was captured beautifully in this remarkable flesh-coloured explosion of colour and form.

Paul Mosse was born in Co. Kilkenny where he lives and works today. He studied from 1966 -1970 at The Chelsea School of Art, London. In 2017/2018 Mosse had a major exhibition at Visual Carlow entitled What’s with the Apocalypse?. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and his work is represented in many private and public collections. Mosse was elected to Aosdana in 2007.
