Conor Mary Foy’s work is inspired by an array of interests including pagan and folk arts, utopian fiction and science fiction, group and power dynamics, ritual, theology, heresy, cults, and utopian and secret societies. Conor Mary Foy’s work is coloured by an overriding interest in fictions, both in relation to creating fictions, and how they are perceived. Incongruous elements in the work often complicate full immersion in the fiction or introduce an ambiguousness in relation to the intended setting. Conor Mary Foy works in video, sculpture, live art, photography, drawing, print, and painting.
