Every visual experience is at one and the same time a receiving of fragmentary information, a giving of form to those visual sensations, and the arousing of a felt response – for artist Paddy Lennon, what ultimately matters is the quality of feeling that results.
Inspired by the landscape, Lennon is interested in connecting the physical to stored cognitive images, making associations, and communicating meaning beyond the literal. In an effort to make associations, he is sensitive to and utilizes the basic visual vocabulary of form, colour, texture, and light and shade. He intuitively understands that every aspect of this vocabulary exerts intrinsic force into a context/composition.
Based in County Wexford, Lennon graduated from City & Guilds Art School, London. He has participated in artist residency programmes in the Red Gate Gallery, Beijng, China; CEAC Residency, Xiamen, China; Liwa Arts Residency, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; and Cill Riallaig Arts Residency, Kerry, Ireland. Lennon’s work is in the collections of the Office of Public Works, University of Limerick, Trinity College Dublin, Citibank Dublin, Museo de Grabado Espanol Contemporneo, State University New York, and numerous private collectors.
