Safe from Harm was a thematic evolution of Paddy’s post-graduate research. His Year of the Artist residency at the Thackray Medical Museum realised work created from a series of discussions with representatives from various faith based communities exploring attitudes to medical technology, ethics and practice. The resulting sculptures were created largely using objects held in the museum collection and exhibited in and amongst the public displays as ‘authentic’ exhibits.
Safe Press Coverage
The 'Safe' collection launched in 2000 and was the first of Paddy's work to receive press coverage regionally and nationally for both its artistic content and educational value.
