Ireland has a tradition of spiritual enquiry. It it also a land of beauty which lends itself to the painter and poet immersing themselves in this beauty. John’s career has involved him in both aspects, progressing from involvement with his surroundings of sea and mountain to that of spiritual enquiry. For the past twenty years he has worked on themes rather than singular paintings, exploring themes such as ‘Love’ in the series ‘The Song of Songs’ and ‘Death’ in the the series “The Dream of Gerontius” and the “The Seven Last Words of Christ”.
John has been invited to continue on in this way with a series based in the understanding of “St Michael” These will be show in Co Kerry in September 2012.
