Poolbeg is a very special spot for many Dubliners. The two striped chimneys are iconic elements in the Dublin landscape. The sky behind them, and the sea around them ever changing. You can see them from all over the city. These paintings showed why the iconic Poolbeg chimneys and their breathtaking surroundings are such a special spot for Dubliners.
“What I love most is to wonder at the beauty of things and do my best to convey this with paint. I like painting about painting and it’s all the juicy textures of the paint and the sheer joyful physicality of it all. Talking about it doesn’t work. You just have to do it. Painting for me creates its own energy.”
