So delighted to have another solo show at Green Fuse Gallery in Westport, County Mayo, which opened last night

Here are a few photos of some of the works

‘Hard Rain’ (again!) & 6 small panels

I think finally I’ve finished this large piece, about 4’x7′

At the same time as working on the big piece stapled to my wooden studio wall, I’ve also been making some small studies on birch panel. These 6, each only 12×16″

The large piece and the small ones are interconnected, both by my process (lifting areas of wet paint in tissue paper, from one work to another, in a type of printing), and also in subject. Although all the works are totally abstract, and as such have no actual subject or representational form, they all come from the idea and challenge that we all face, of the potential destruction of our beautiful environment. The shapes and forms, particularly in the small pieces, for me have echoes of sea and sky, rock and sand, light on water
