Artist Chris Quinlan

 

Chris Quinlan was Born in 1968 in Co. Tipperary, Ireland and now lives and paints in Kilbeggan, Co. Westmeath. His hometown in Templemore provided the foundation for his artistry and his love of travel and nature has hugely influenced his work.

Chris is predominantly a self-taught artist, painting since 1999. His work has evolved overtime, leading to a unique and original chromoluminism/divisionism impressionistic technique of painting with an eye-catching blend of rich colours and bold textures. An inviting and vivid style, sensitivity and atmosphere that envelops the canvas.

ARTISTS STATEMENT

My paintings are the result of my desire and passion to paint. Oil Painting gives me the privilege of creating my own order to things, to reflect who I am on this colorful journey of self-discovery and to be unafraid to share what I find.

My intended goal is to capture and communicate life’s experiences, moments and memories and convey my painted definition to the viewer. To draw the viewer into the piece and to stimulate and inspire them with its textures and colour.

I am influenced by colours I see, feel and experience. I am in awe of and thoroughly inspired by the old impressionists, particularly the works of Monet, Van Gogh and Sargent with their play of objects and light.

When I begin a painting, it feels unnatural, unorganized and unbalanced, I seize the moment and completely let go and with the knowledge of a new and colourful path, I excitedly await my next adventure.

I will require a thousand lifetimes and a million canvases to paint all the concepts of my imagination.

Irish artist Ciano

Can You Feel it

Ciano is an Irish visual artist living and working in Cork, Ireland. Reflecting upon a past life as a DJ & Music Producer, provided Ciano with a wealth of influences which is present in his own individual contemporary art style. Working out of his local Cork studio, mainly in acrylics combined with collage and other different materials, his work can conjure up a multitude of thoughts and emotions, inviting the viewer to spend more time reflecting upon the theme and meaning within each piece. Ciano says that when creating a piece of artwork, most of the processing stages comes out of raw emotions and feelings, and I work fluidly, allowing ideas to guide me within that instant.

Artist Jelena Straiziene

 

Artist Jelena Strasiene

Jelena Straiziene, I was born in Lithuania (Vilnius). I began to paint, studying architecture (as one of the main subjects) at Gedimino Vilnius University (Lithuania), therefore I often use architectural elements in my works. Since I moved to Ireland in 2008, I have had several exhibitions, both group and solo. Now I live and paint in New Ross, Co.Wexford. My paintings are a means to express my feelings and thoughts, my admiration for the unique atmosphere of every moment. I love to experiment in order to better convey the mood. ARTIST STATEMENT In each of us there is a certain part where there are no taboos and conventions, where the main thing is the imagination and the freedom to express our feelings and emotions. That is what I am trying to open in my paintings. I look at the cracked paint on the wall and see objects and shapes. City lights reflected in raindrops, architectural fragments of old streets, all the moods and emotions I write in my imagination to then pass through colors and lines. Painting becomes a game of experimentation, it allows me to learn more about me and the world and a way of saying thank you for all that I see and feel.
