Mooney constructs worlds populated by grotesque characters, strange animals, food, lurid flowers and morphed effigies of historical, mythical and religious figures. He likes to observe the various ways in which different cultures celebrate, memorialise and represent death. He strives to create works that refuse to be ignored, like an insistent child teamed with the beauty of something venomous.
In this show, he explores themes and symbolism pertaining to fertility, regeneration, economy, peace, health and prosperity. waspsstudios.org.uk
