20 Jun Exhibition launch of Stephen Brennan paintings on ART WALL
PAINTINGS: Light and Mood
We are delighted to launch of new paintings by Stephen Brennan on ART WALL at The Leitrim Design House on Friday June 17th at 7pm. This exhibition continues until August 9th. The Light and Mood of the Irish countryside are the abiding inspiration for this series. Working on location affords Stephen the opportunity to experience nature first hand. His aim is to capture a mood and sense of place at that moment, responding to changes within the scene as it happens. Stephen paints in a traditional manner, based on strong observation and a high degree of draughtsmanship combined with tonal precision.
Stephen Brennan studied printmaking in Galway IT and received a degree in Interactive Media from Dun Laoghaire college of Art and Design. He spent several years painting and drawing the human figure, spending time in the Swedish Academy of Realist Art, Stockholm and studied the painting techniques of the great masters of the past. A three month stay in the ‘Art Student’s League’ New York, provided the opportunity to paint along side contemporary American masters. An extended stay in Madrid, the ‘Circulo de Bellas Artes’ and the ‘Real Circulo Artistico’ Barcelona afforded Stephen to study the human figure and experiment with different materials and techniques over an extended period.
This ART WALL launch is taking place in The Dock on the same evening as Sligo IT graduate exhibition in The Dock galleries, we hope that you will join us in celebrating a wide range of creative talent from the region.
