James Mac said: “In viewing these art works, you’re also gaining an insight into my own story: as a queer, Irish person living with Tourette’s syndrome.

“Makeup has been a unique outlet for dealing with my own, circumstances: through escapism, through healing, through creativity.

“The exhibition as a whole pays homage to my family, to my extended queer family, the LGBTQIA+ community and close friends whose belief and support have been my pillars; a foundation on which I continue to build.”

Makeup X Art is free to visit at Morley Gallery, and runs until Thursday 1 February 2024.

James will be hosting a special Meet and greet event from 2-5pm on Saturday 27 January; click here for more information.
