These two paintings are part of a body of work that I will be showing in my first solo exhibition ‘Elsewhere’ at The Hyde Bridge Gallery in Sligo.
The subjects of my recent paintings are a selection of carefully chosen derelict houses residual of another life passed on the very edge of the continent. Largely ignored, unloved and in some cases simply waiting for the tide to wash them to sea, these houses have become descriptive of themes dominant in my work at present – endurance, fragility, escapism and the notion of life’s transience all set against the changing light and weather of Ireland’s North West landscape.
The show will be opened by Cormac O’Leary at 6pm on Tuesday 7th April. All welcome!
I will be at the gallery most days while the exhibition is on show. I’d be delighted to talk about the work with anyone who calls by.
