‘Colour Run – Stragglers’ and ‘Colour Run – The Crowd’ marked the beginning of a new body of work under development in 2019.
The two paintings were well received. ‘Colour Run – Stragglers’ was selected for the 189th Royal Hibernian Annual Exhibition and ‘Colour Run – The Crowd’ was selected for Cairde Visual at The Model, Sligo where it won the Cosgroves Delicatessen Award. Both works will enter private collections following the close of each exhibition.
Following their success I find myself chasing new leads and teasing out new threads of ideas that emerged from the making of these paintings. Further development of this work was shown in a solo exhibition at The Kildare Gallery in Carton House, Maynooth in September 2019.
