Momentum oil painting Exhibition 2010
Momentum was the name I gave an exhibition of this work in 2010. It consisted of a selection of paintings I started in 2001 after I returned from freelancing as an editor and motion graphic artist in Sydney. After years of painting and sketching I discovered my love of learning to to paint. Over the years as my skill progressed the work changed and I was infatuated by loosing my self in long nights of painting and the frustration of high detail. Its difficult to say Ill work like this again as Im always exploring new challenges.
Dublin 5005 – 2007
This group of work was made with reference of lving back in Dublin, when I lived in Portotbello. The work took on a whole new set of colours for me to work with.
New York work
Working over the previous paintings got me to this stage where I explored the colours and my learning of drawing mechanical objects. For me it was the challenge of learning and painting reflective surfaces and trying to achieve a photorealistic element while retaining a painting style.
