'KINVARA IN THE '50s' PAINTINGS AUG. 2013


MarkDwyer_2013_Oil_on_Canvas_01.jpg

A new exhibition of paintings based on images of Kinvara, Co. Galway photographed by the Anthropologist Robert Cresswell who visited Kinvara in the 1950's. Mr. Creswell took over 450 images, mainly in black and white during His stay. As an Artist I have chosen a selection of these photos and decided to paint the images in colour on canvas using only the palette knife. My aim was to paint what Mr. Creswell might have seen before taking the black and white photos.

OBAMA (2009)

“BOGLAND”

This painting was presented to The President and First Lady of the United States of America, Barack and Michelle Obama on the 17th of March 2009 when An Taoiseach Brian Cowen and his wife Mary visited the White House on
St. Patrick’s Day.

The painting was inspired by the boglands of Offaly which treasures an abundance of peatland scenery with bracing air and primeval loneliness that are truly inspirational. Fleecy bog cotton, reeds and rushes wave in the summer breeze, wild flowers grow in quiet abundance, heathers in their autumn glory resemble the most elegant tweeds, wildlife flourishes and winter wraps the peatlands in an eerie impenetrable mist.

Tales and legends abound. Gnarled stumps and tangled roots of oak and pine rest on the surface after long years of saturation in the depths.

You can experience peatlands in Offaly as nowhere else.
See the old way of cutting turf for the home fire and try cutting a few sods with the sleán.

Tales of the Shannon River emerge from the mists of Gaelic myth and legend.
