MICHAEL KILLEN, SCULPTOR
Welcome to my website. I am an established Irish sculptor with over thirty five years experience working in bronze, wood and stone. My work to date has been mainly figurative - as it is through the figure that I feel I can capture an exciting sense of life.
Allied to my sculptural work I have a great love of print-making and am now a member of the Graphic Studio. Dublin. Below you will see an Artist's Proof print of a recent etching, "The Swim".
I have completed numerous commissions for public bodies, organizations and individuals. The commissions have been varied in nature, examples include a sculpture for a public hospital in Northern Ireland and commissioned works as part of the restoration of Swords Castle, County Dublin.
I am currently working on the preparatory cartoons for a public commission which commenced in the spring of 2017. I exhibit in a number of galleries in Ireland and had the pleasure of presenting a solo exhibition at the Irish Embassy, Berlin in 2012.
This Is a working cartoon for a commission currently being developed. The Drawing measures 165 cms and when the piece is cast in bronze it will measure 200 cms. Work on the project will commence in the Autumn 2017
