lough bray

objecta arboria

Avoiding the sheer darkness of mountain turf I often found myself adding colour for comfort. The later pieces in the objecta arboria series are dark — getting directly to the heart of the matter.

mythical birds

Although I imagined this painting completed way back in 1987, in the meantime it has been regularly modified, reworked and re-imagined, developing and evolving on its own terms. This short video documents the modification process.

The inspiration came during a magnificent dawn-chorus in May 2020.

Re-edited in December 2018, this short video is about a sense of place and inspiration. The footage was taken on a visit to the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains in 2017. The objects and paintings evolved subsequently.
