New York

With Mark Borghi at his gallery, Mark Borghi Fine Art in Bridgehampton, Long Island where I have been invited to show in October.

The painting between us is by Willem De Kooning, and you can see Elaine de Kooning’s painting, ‘Ballpark’ behind Mark. Their current show is ‘Compendium’

Also in this show, paintings by Kenneth Noland, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Hans Hoffman as well as works by Alexander Calder and John Chamberlain and much more

It was a real pleasure to meet Mark and also Lucy Gong. I am staying in New York City for a month and also visiting his other gallery there where the solo show for Alyssa di Edwardo opens on 12th September. While I am over here I will be working with gallery manager Katherine Gagnon to prepare for my show, and  helping her oversee the preparation of my paintings arriving from Ireland, including 4 large pieces that are being stretched locally

More details later. My show, ‘Voyage’ will open at MBFA in Bridgehampton on 20th October and run till end of November

getting ready for NYC

I am reeling from the exciting news that I have been offered a solo show at Mark Borghi Fine Art in New York

I don’t have any dates yet, but I’m firing on all cylinders getting new work made so I’m ready

These are all oil and cold wax medium on 60cm square, 5ply cradled birch panels. Most of them don’t have titles yet. But they may relate to the earth, our place on it and questions about what happens when we depart. #ascension #realm #spirit #earth

New York memories of 2016 & plans for 2018

I had a fabulous, very short trip to Manhattan in July 2016. I had such a good time, and I want to go back for more! I’m hoping to go for nearly a month this Autumn. To see the ‘fall’ colours, to visit more contemporary galleries in Chelsea, and hopefully to paint, if I can find some studio space!

Here are some photos of street views and some favourite works I saw in galleries on my last trip, and a few of the paintings of mine that came out of it

Yves Klein

Matisse and Degas



The High Line, diptych, each canvas 80cm sq, private collection

5th Avenue, small oil sketch in paper made ‘on the road’
