It is very hard to sit down and write ‘what my art is about’. I never really get it right! that’s true for years!.. So every now and again I try to re-write my artist statement with the hope I’m understood that bit better..
Lots of things come to mind when I paint and for lots of reasons I have the need to paint. Making art is the best way for me to express what I can’t put into words or sometimes even understand.. We live in a small corner of a small planet in a tiny universe.. where there are infinite galaxies and beyond, beyond, beyond… space is continuously expanding too by the way..
In any case.. the link here is a small indication and the rest is up to you the viewer.
I want you to interpret my art your way because it is also for you! 🙂
Painting in oils and coldwax. Mixed with drawing and mark making in
charcoal and pencil. Full moon was on my mind at the time of making this
painting and I was very much affected by a recent full moon at the time
of when this came work about.
My current new series is all about pushing abstraction more than I have ever done before. Responding to my surrounding landscape and being so passionate about nature, forests and the open landscape. The colours are influenced by the bright vibrant summer light that is being experienced here in Ireland lately.
This is only a short rough video idea on the current direction I am taking and I am very excited about it indeed!
Two new paintings which I think are almost finished. A few mediums I used were oils on canvas, matt spectra gel, pieces from the forest floor and sand from Brittas Bay beach not too far from where I live.
