A working artist since 1990 much of Counihan’s early work was created in the public realm in the USA, U.K. and Ireland. The exploration of places, communities and their histories has always been central to his practice. In works that engage with place, communities and the resonance of human habitation he creates site-specific responses primarily through the medium of sculpture in both public and private spaces, in wilderness or abandoned landscapes. He also maintains a studio-based practice creating works for exhibitions and installations in gallery and non-gallery contexts in Ireland and abroad. He has been fortunate to receive several grants and awards over the years including, twice, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award
