Folk Artist, Bill O’Callaghan’s vessels and sculptures are greatly influenced by the Folklore that permeated his childhood in Cork, Ireland. He draws inspiration from the beings of Celtic Mythology, like the Tuatha de Danann, as well as a belief in the Other World of Faerie and Spirit. His artwork captures the soul of a piece, transcending the physical.
In his photographs, he brings into focus what might be happening, unseen, when we aren’t watching, in those quiet moments when the veil between worlds thins.
