Darragh Séamus Gallagher took a B.A. (first class honours) in English and Byzantine Studies at The Queen’s University of Belfast (1994), an M.Phil. in Medieval and Renaissance Literature at the University of Cambridge (1995), and a Ph.D. in Irish Writing and Visual Arts, also at Queen’s University.  His doctoral thesis, “Stern Colour and Delicate Line” is a study of the close relationship between visual and verbal representations of the west of Ireland from the Irish Literary Revival to the end of the twentieth century; it charts the enduring attraction of western landscape for writers and artists alike.

After several years as a teacher of English, Gallagher has returned to his interest in landscape, nature and the visual arts.  His artistic practice is sited within the arenas of ecology, climate change and environmental studies and engages with contemporary notions of Utopia.  He is a keen walker with a particular fondness for the Chiltern Hills and the Camino de Santiago de Compostela.

Darragh Séamus Gallagher is currently studying for an M.A. in Fine Art at Wimbledon College of Art, London, and has been awarded a residency to work in collaboration with Japanese artists on environmental issues in Tokyo.
