A Hut at the Edge of the Village, Martin Shaw on John Moriarty

'There is always something of a thrill when you discover a secret, and out there in the wider world John is pretty much that. His work rattles around in the deep interior, is not invested in handrails. Moriarty is speaking to a wiser, stranger part of ourselves. A dimension we may barely register. He circumnavigates small talk and escorts us from the shopping mall and out under a hundred thousand stars.' Martin Shaw on John Moriarty, in The Honest Ulsterman
