Now & Then

When I was invited to contribute to the East Galway Library Art Trail I wanted to demonstrate what I had learned in Art College so that any aspiring art student might get an insight into what lies ahead. I have titled this showing “Now and Then “.
“Now ” is about my current, third year in college. Presently we are exploring the essence of the medium of paint, its possibilities and limitations. There is no specific expression in the work; their meaning is exploration. Each exploration may be leading us somewhere interesting but it should always lead us somewhere new.
“ Then” is a selection of my work over the years since 1972. These are explorations in ink, watercolour, oils and spray painting that have ultimately lead me to “Now” and my continuing adventure in the visual arts.
