Delighted to announce that my work is featured in the new issue of Painterstubes magazine
My painting ‘Peripheries’ is on the front and back covers
Here’s the painting hanging in a house in Westport, County Mayo
This installation is for an episode of an interior design show on Irish television. More news soon!
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
(and me peering through the window before heading back home on the bus to Donegal this morning)
The works available should be uploaded to the gallery website over the weekend
2 new works on canvas in the studio today
4 new works on linen
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
This large work is having a powerful effect
In size alone it has a kick !
194 x 253cm
Here it is with lovely Seamus Quinn, who stretched and framed it.
He had to do the work at the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny, as his framing shop (which is just across the road) wasn’t big enough
Here’s a view of it being worked on a couple of days earlier
And here it is taking up all the floor space in my sitting room before I rolled it up to take it to Seamus to be stretched
3 new works on 70cm panels
‘Do you have a map?’ 1,2 & 3
