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.
We opened our little studio/gallery with the help of some great friends on Main St, Dingle. Pop in and say hello, I am usually painting most days, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for weekly updates.
“Land vs Sea” exhibition of some of the iconic images from the Kerry coast line and as part of the Wild Atlantic Way. This exhibition was on show at Sweet Pea on Green Street in Dingle.
We re delighted to once again be part of the Easter exhibition in Ballyferitter this year. Two of our paintings were on show, “An Siorrach” and “The Three Sisters”. Both are acrylic on canvas.
