My first art swop with fellow artist Michael Gemmell.. and Limerick School of Art and Design graduate.. I am truly honored to swop with such a talented artist who was tutored by John Shinnors and both of whom I’ve admired since discovering their work during my early years as an artist. I am completely inspired with this abstraction titled ‘The Burren in Autumn’ Oil on Canvas, 40x50cm
Swooped with my ‘Unfolding Autumn’ Oil and mixed media on canvas, 30x30cm
Now I am going to paint something new just to mark the moment.. More artists should be doing this.. it’s a phenomenal experience!..
Thank you Michael!
‘Entering The Dream’, the title of this painting and of my upcoming solo exhibition in Ranalagh Arts, Dublin in just 2 weeks time. I hope to bring a piece of the forest and my surrounding rural landscape into the city for a little space in time.. I have a passion for exploring forests and being surrounded by the sight, smells and sounds. It takes me back to my childhood when I was just a little thing full of wonder and innocence. How the world has changed and everything around us.. seeing life and how the cycle of old and new continues from one into the next.. The ‘broken trees’ that stand out in the open spaces of the landscape recall these such thoughts..
‘Entering the Dream’ opens with guest speaker and artist Michael Gemmell, May 24th at Ranalagh Arts. Time of opening TBA..
Pieces of recently finished painting for my next upcoming solo exhibition in Dublin in a few weeks. Details to follow.
