Since graduating from the National College of Art and Design, Brian Garvey has exhibited both nationally and internationally. Following his MA research degree in Philosophy he has continued to lecture in this subject and in Art, Design, Cultural Studies and Art History in the SETU Carlow, Wexford Campus School of Art and Design, as well as the National College of Art and Design and University College Dublin. In more recent years he has concentrated particularly on researching in the fields of Contemporary Philosophy and the Visual Arts. He has a special interest in the representation of technology, its connection with and difference from memory and the binding of these together as explored through painting, photography and film.
