ArtNetdlr is proud to present a lecture and meet up with one of Ireland’s leading contemporary landscape painters Donald Teskey, who will discuss his large-scale landscape paintings which offer powerful images that bound with energy and force of nature.
Donald Teskey was born in Co. Limerick and graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design in1978. He came to prominence as an artist through his skill as a draughtsman during the 1980s with several significant solo exhibitions. Since 1992 he has crafted out a substantial body of work as a painter of the landscape focusing on the ruggedness of the western seaboard. Sometimes working on a very large scale, his images reflect his response to the formal elements of composition; shape, form and fall of light. The result are powerful images of instantly recognisable parts of the Irish landscape with large abstract passages and surfaces which articulate the relentless, energetic and elemental force of nature.
He is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies. Teskey’s work has been exhibited in the UK, USA, Canada, China, Germany, France, Finland and South Africa.Collections include the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Arts Council of Ireland, corporate and private collections worldwide. He is a member of Aosdana.
