Sail away (Framed)


All summer long from my garden I have loved watching all the boats sailing by with their colourful sails against all the perfect blue skies of this lovely heatwave..
These yellows sails sparkled against the sky and blue seas, I watched it sail along the coast wondering what it would be like feeling the wind in your hair, racing on the waters with a golden sun beaming down… I decided it must be a brilliant experience

My Landscape paintings evolve from my fascination with the relationships between light, wind and the landscape. Some of the paintings portray the effects of wind on the landscape and the changing cloudscapes of the sky, while others focus on moments of stillness and quiet contemplation. In each work I attempt to capture the transformation of an ordinary scene caused by the presence of the elemental powers- light, wind and the earth, to articulate and record in paint a moment of weather-driven drama or luminescent beauty that may otherwise fade and be lost……. For me paint and the act of painting…creating a world or story on a canvas that can live and grow both in my head or the viewer’s imagination is the magic and purpose of my work. A painting should suggest/conjure up a whole of possibilies that can make each viewing a new experience. In my work I attempt to depict not objective reality but rather the subjective emotions and responses that my surroundings or subject arouse in me.   I graduated from NCAD in Dublin Ireland with an Honours degree in 1995 and have worked as an artist ever since, exhibiting extensively both internationally & nationally(in Ireland) – The Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery, The Guinness Hopstore and the RHA Gallery among others and my work can be found in many important collections nationally and Internationally including the OPW.
