A Monolith Stretches Towards Carrickduff

A monolith stretches towards CarrickduffIn this painting, the artist takes our eyes on a journey across the hills of Salrock in Connemara, where huge monoliths are revealed like the very the bones of the landscape.  Painted in heavy impasto, the beautiful colours of the lichens and minerals in the rocks’ seams are revealed.  The vigorous palette knife rendering of lines and grooves in the stone illustrate the artist’s appreciation of the secret geological dynamism of this land.
