Custom House Studios, Westport Quay, Mayo
Custom House Studios are pleased to host ‘The Elements’, an exhibition of recent paintings by Neal Greig.
Neal Greig paints directly in the landscape. He responds to the weather and the day as it changes in an instinctive manner. He documents the light, space and texture, spontaneously painting the changes with a sense of urgency in an effort to catch the changing light. Working outside brings an instinctive aspect to the paintings. He paints an organic, natural space rather than a picturesque view of landscape. The range of colours is kept simple, mixing colours on the palette and on the painting, moving paint around using a wide selection of brushes and tools. His aim is to depict a distillation and observance of the passing of time, rather than a snapshot of a landscape.
