Some of my new paintings. These are 3 paintings I recently finished. There a lot more to come and I am very excited about this new work. The change in environment has indeed seeped into this new work. County Wicklow has so many beautiful places and there are hidden pieces of detail that take my interest all around here. I am so inspired by the landscape here. From the wide open landscape of the mountains to the sheltered interior of the forestry. I have found solace.
For me working small can be more of a challenge than working larger.. The space in which I have to work with smaller canvases can feel restricted and cluster phobic. It’s only when the image and atmosphere I have in my memory from a space out in the open landscape comes into site and the narrative slowly begins to unfold, do I feel the small space on the canvas has become infinite and significant to me.
