Rob Monaghan’s work examines themes of belonging, idenity, family and time. He addresses some of the seemingly common factors in our lives.
The recurring theme throughout the body of work comprising ‘Breathe’ is the fragility that exists throughout our daily experience of life. It unravels personal relationships and the natural environment, to better express a commonality of experience of both. A complex and interwoven narritive is created through a wide vocabulary of metaphorical objects.
Rob is concerned by the personification of our feelings toward and through our devices. The relationship it can build becomes an interesting duality. He raises questions on the real probability of technological singularity and what that might mean on a personal level.
