The First Spark, The Last Spark New Works by Patrick Conyngham

Wed 31 Oct – Sat 1 Dec
Artisann Gallery


Patrick Conyngham works in mixed media on canvas and panel using oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal, and wax.  In his work there is a play between abstract and figurative: sometimes remaining completely conceptual, and at other times more identifiable images appear to flow through the paintings. According to the poet and writer Dermot Healy, ‘he digs into the landscape to unearth the absurdity that lies at the heart of reality.  The rich topography is emptied onto the canvas by a painter with a rare eye’.
