About The Artwork

My partner was reading something to me and asked “How do you say that word? Abmidibable…Abdominabubble..Abubblible?” I replied, pronouncing slowly, “A bomb in a bull” and there the concept for this piece began ? I made a sketch of my idea, but knew I couldn’t do justice to the Bull from steel. So how about asking the very talented Joanne Robey (whom we’d never met but are big fans of) if she’d like to assist in a collaboration piece.. Jo’s work is often quirky and I had no doubt she would come up with the perfect Bull for the piece. I sent Jo the sketch and a brief description of the idea. To my delight she replied with “Hi Nigel ! That sounds mad ! But then I love mad ?.….

A British artist living in West Cork, Ireland. Self taught in a multitude of disciplines, Nigel Connell Bass is well known for his sculpture work in new and recycled metals, predominantly life-size depictions of birds and animals. He worked for 10 years, as a scenic artist for a busy Theatre production company, before moving with a young family to Ireland in 1996. Bringing up a young family after the move to Ireland, and completing a self-build house, meant that for a few years, art took a backseat role as he worked mainly painting, decorating and sign-writing to make a regular living wage. In 2015 Nigel returned to art full-time. He is enjoying success regularly exhibiting his sculpture work at prestigious venues throughout Ireland and continues to explore new concepts in sculpture and also painting in acrylics onto rusted metal sheets.
