Paul Maye graduated with a BA Fine Art - Paint & Printmaking in 1996. In 2002, he was awarded an Arts Council for a residency at Arthouse, Dublin. He was selected to participate in the Florence Biennial in 2003 and again in 2005. In 2004, he undertook a self directed 6 week residency within the Radiography Department of Galway University Hospital. More recently he was commissioned by Absolut Vodka to install the Fictional Portraits project as part of the Absolut Identity series for the 2011 Galway Arts Festival.

Having graduating with a BA Fine Art - Paint & Printmaking in 1996, my work has evolved into a more conceptually driven multimedia based practice with the choice of medium determined by the concepts or issues being explored. Through digital imaging, photography, sculpture,radiography and explosives, my work is primarily an ongoing exploration into the nature of perception - appearance versus substance. I am particularly interested in subverting the inherent properties and associations of a particular medium - often highlighting a conflict that can exist between visual and intellectual knowledge, between what we see and what we know.
