Notes

Curran is concerned with the relationship between the labouring body and the built environment. The subjects he portrays are often alienated from the spaces in which they work. Curran has exhibited extensively in solo exhibitions and numerous group shows. File contains newspaper clippings, press releases and images of the artists work.
