‘In the beginning was the light’

Light is often a metaphor for joy and happiness. The artist tries to explore in this exhibition the emotionally expressive power of light.

As the title suggests the exhibition centres around contrasting the artists visual experience of two very definite and distinct landscapes, one in Creevagh in north Mayo on the wild Atlantic way and the other in the Mediterranean location of Cordoba in southern Spain.

The artist explores  the difference in the quality of light and the way it interacts with the indigenous vernacular buildings within the local landscape.

The artist is strongly influenced by painters such as the American artists Edward hopper, Andrew Wyeth and the Spanish artist Joaquin Sorolla.

In addition to the quality of the light the artist explores the abstract architectural shapes of farm buildings in the west of Ireland and contrasts them with the local Andalusian  historic vernacular buildings of the Mediterranean.
