Born in New York, raised in Ireland, Derick Smith initially began a career in design before moving on to chemical photography which resulted in his first solo exhibition in New York (2006). Later, he began to experiment with sculpture and painting after graduating from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin (2012) and has since exhibited in many national and international group exhibitions. His most recent solo exhibition took place in Dublin’s La Cathedral Gallery (2015) and was also invited to exhibit work at the opening of a new Moscow gallery, Art Baza (2015). Derick’s work is rooted in process and an understanding of the technical aspects of a craft which can be harnessed to open dialogues about the nature of perception.
