Closest to Our Star

‘Alpha Centauri’, Oils and Cold Wax on Canvas.
Titled after a star system of 3 stars that make up part of the constellation Centaurus which are the closest star system to the sun.
This was an award winning painting I did as part of an online competion during the pandemic with @hamblyandhambly . It began a new direction in my style of painting and palette and some of the work in this exhibition has been helped through ‘the struggle stages’, by going back and just looking and studying this painting.
I put this video together to bring it a bit closer to you and how it looks in its frame in the gallery towards the end. The music is part of some experimental soundscapes I sometimes delve into..
‘Alpha Centauri’ is available in this final week of my solo exhibition ‘Wanderings’ at Seamus Ennis Arts, Naul, Dublin.
