Highly inventive and idiosyncratic with his materials, Paul Mosse is inspired by the energy, growth, and seeming chaos of natural world around him. Using a variety of mixed-media, including non-traditional materials (plastic pellets, polystyrene, sawdust, nails and screws) as well as paper, paint and wood, he manipulates and builds complex surfaces on his paintings and sculptures. Mosse was born in Co. Kilkenny where he lives and works today. He has exhibited nationally and internationally. He was elected to Aosdana in 2008.
