Irish artist Joe Flannery is giving us a new fresh view of Kerry’s iconic coastal landscape with a striking contemporary feel. He clearly shows his architectural roots in his recent collections. His use of imagery and colour strikes a chord at many levels. Joe sees arts as an expression of energy and likes to feel that everyone can experience this. His analytical vision of images on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way recreates powerful seascapes with a strong use of vibrant colours.
His connection to the sea extends far beyond painting. As a long-time sailing enthusiast he has a viewpoints of this rugged coastline not seen by most people. He can usually be found in his studio and gallery on Main Street in Dingle, while his work is on view in other significant galleries in Kerry is sought by enthusiasts on both sides of the Atlantic.
