Here is an in depth interview about my art that I did recently with Ruan Shields recently.
I started this painting at the beginning of July 2020 with a few scribbles on this canvas and then went blank on it for weeks. Then one night in August I went all colour expressive with it, it ended up here. A closer look at this painting I finished last August 2020. I made aContinue reading “The Humidity of and August Starty Night”
Pieces of ‘Neowise’ coming together. Early stages ✨🙂 Here are some pieces of my current painting in progress. I was inspired to make a large scale painting back in the summer this year around comet NEOWISE which was soaring our skies at the time. I left it to breathe for the past few months asContinue reading “Working Title – Neowise”
Re-working ‘Torso’ which began last year in early 2019, this is one of 3 paintings I have re-visited in the past few months. In this first video below I am sharing some of my thoughts on what I was up to before finishing the painting a couple of days ago. The figure has emerged againContinue reading “‘Torso’ Re-Visited 2019-2020”
This is a small snip of today’s recording of a current work in progress. It is a diptych in 100 x 100 cm (or both at 50cm x 100cm) that I am working on. They can live either together or apart I am hoping, at the finished stage. I forget to hit record sometimes betweenContinue reading “In the Studio”
Re-worked 2020Over the past few months looking back at this painting from 2019, the more I looked at it, the more I felt it needed refining. So I revisited it these past few strange weeks.
I am thrilled to have my work photographed and now posted to my website here in Work 7. This work came about so fast and is continuing into the next pieces with a small change in direction. I am looking at opening the space more in the work as per my post last week. IContinue reading “Work 7”
The direction I want to go with my work is to give space to the painting. It needs more of a way in and an outlet. Out of curiosity I attended this years ‘Speed Curating’ at Get Together 2019 and I gained some good advise from some of Ireland’s top gallery curators. I know mostContinue reading “Painting in Progress”
Trying some inks on cotton rag paper. It will be on exhibit in a group show I am delighted to be part of. ‘Wicklow Artists’, March 29th at La Touché Place, Greystones, Co.Wicklow
I am currently working on this painting and this was an early stage where it was a few months ago. I felt at the time that it could be finished at that early stage and I didn’t want to do much more with it. I put it aside for a few weeks, which is whatContinue reading “Painting Process”
This is my first painting of 2019 which is almost finished. For some reason the thoughts of the planets aligning came to mind somewhere during the process. It could be to do with a philosophical conversation I had with my father when I was back home for Christmas. We were talking about the idea ofContinue reading “First painting of 2019”
I have a few paintings on the go at the moment, it helps me try not to over work the painting. Something I struggle with a lot of the time.. The ‘knowing when to stop’ is something I think most artists try to do and for me I find leaving the painting for a dayContinue reading “From the last few days”
