Westival 2020

I am really happy my painting, ‘Communication’ has been selected for Westival 2020 launching October 21st and will run for 3 weeks. Due to current times, the show has been moved to the virtual world and can be seen on the link above or on their website https://westival.ie/

This years exhibition was an open call to artists in response to this quote by T.S. Eliot:

“We shall not cease from exploration

 And the end of all our exploring

   Will be to arrive where we started

      And know the place for the first time.”

T. S. Eliot  Four Quartets- 1955.

Communication, Detail Close up pt 1

Here are 2 short videos on the detail and close ups of my painting. There is nothing quite the same as seeing and studying a work of art in the flesh. To be able to experiencing it in a shared physical environment seems to be a rare thing this year 2020. My hope in making these video close ups on my paintings, is that they bring the viewer that small bit closer to them, even into their own homes or wherever they may be when watching them.
