Gone to its new home today. This is one of my dead trees series.. romanticising time, painted on wood panel it speaks for itself maybe..
Here is a short video piece of me explaining my painting technique, what materials I use and where my inspirations come from.
For any inquiries about my paintings and their availability, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can go to my contact page here on my website.
Here is a short interview and video introduction to my current solo exhibition at Ranelagh Arts, Dublin.
My most recent painting entitled ‘Entering The Dream’. A visual description of being immersed in my surroundings deep in the forest.
A recall of flickering light through movement, of fast changing seasonal colours, of mood and atmosphere, of sounds and scents and of the euphoric warmth that it brings to me.
The piece is painted in oils mixed with bees wax, otherwise known as ‘cold wax technique’ where I melted the wax and mix with turpentine to make a thick paste when cooled down. This is then mixed in with my oil paints to a consistency that is thick but vibrant in colour giving a mat finish and dries quicker. I surfaced the canvas with pine needles and sand letting it dry before applying the paint and wax, something I do in most of my painting.
