Exhibition: Richard Proffitt, A Crystal Split the Yolk on Paradise Lane

Richard Proffitt (born Liverpool, UK, 1985) is an artist based in Dublin, Ireland. Proffitt’s work in painting, sculpture, video, and sound is characterised by its manipulation and repurposing of found material, recurring themes, coded motifs, and symbolism. These works often combine to create installations that evoke previously inhabited and later abandoned places of worship; environments suggestive of the intermingling universes of esoteric religions, the bedrooms of teenage loners, and the remote dwellings of psychedelic cults.

He has exhibited both nationally and internationally and recent exhibitions include Shadow The Solar Trail, VISUAL, Carlow, 2023, A Memory Circular, Kevin Kavanagh, Dublin, 2021, EVA International, Limerick City, 2021, May the moon rise and the sun set, UCC/Glucksman, Cork, 2019 & Display, Link & Cure, The Complex, Dublin, 2019. He studied Fine Art (MA) at Manchester School of Art, 2007-08, and Visual Arts (BA) at University of Salford, 2004-2007.
