big ones

I thought I would bring together some of my large works from the last few years, here in a post, and remind myself where they are now.

All these paintings are between 150 and 300cm long and up to 140cm deep. All were made on unstretched linen, stamped to my studio wall, then stretched afterwards, either here or at their destination after they were sold

This is ‘Tower’ just under 3m long. It was a huge challenge getting it out to its new home, by boat, onto a little island off Donegal

This is ‘Voyage’, about 100x190cm, shown at Mark Borghi Fine Art in New York, and placed with a client over there

Me with ‘Lugh’s Portal’ on the opening night of my show at MBFA last year. The painting is still there in their inventory

This is ‘Due West’ in my solo show of the same name two years ago at GreenFuse gallery in Westport. It’s home again now

Also these two:

And these two:

All 4 are 70cm sq on unprimed birch panels

tracery

These 3 paintings are unusually simple and delicate for me. They were made by transferring some paint, with marks I particularly liked, from canvas onto unprimed birch panels. The image was made by pressing creased tissue paper onto the canvas and then transferring the ‘print’ into the panel. I suppose they are mono prints of sorts.

I’m not sure how I will seal them, probably a coat of oil and cold wax medium when they are fully dry in a few weeks
