Painting: Acrylic, Paint on Canvas.
Saint Hippolyte le Graveyron as it’s fully called is a place I like to return to in my paintings.
It has a quiet spell-like quality Along the crest of the hill is a line of Mediterranean pines standing out against the skyline.
Have you noticed, sometimes at dusk, the light shimmers with a luminescent green-blue?
In the painting, the full, glowing, moon rises through the trees. Colours are altered, subtly.
I sought to make this a moment so hushed and quiet, a time to stop and reflect.
This 31.75″ x 31.75″ x 1.8″, acrylic on deep edge canvas, is ready to hang.
The edges, painted white, are 1.8" deep so framing is not required.
All my paintings are varnished to add a protective coat against dust.
Only the highest quality archival fine art grade acrylic paints are used on the surface gessoed and prepared by myself.
Packing: all work is packed professionally using protective compressed foam boards 2 cm deep so that your painting arrives safely.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
A statement on why I make Art.
How can I make tangible on a paint surface a world that is full of magic and poetry? My finished pieces do not mirror a subject matter but are a representation of emotions felt in a specific time or place. Often the fleeting effect of a particular light and colour in nature are held somewhere in my visual memory. At some point, this takes centre stage on the painting I am working on. It may appear during the process of creation without an obvious connection to the subject matter at hand and yet, it adds another dimension, a particular atmosphere. These processes are ways and means by which I express my connection to nature in all its richness and variety. I moved from Ireland to France to create a new body of work with the regular discipline of painting small oil studies on panel. These inform larger landscapes, still lifes and abstract works. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art (BFA). My work is in collections in France, the USA, Great Britain and Ireland.
