LIAM JONES
Connemara Sunset - Oil on Canvas
 

Liam Jones was born in ballina, Co.Mayo. The wild beauty of the surrounding countryside was a powerful catalyst in moving him into the world of landscape painting.


He is widely travelled having worked in Europe and America, but he was continously drawn back to thid country and to the west of ireland in particular.he held his first one-man exhinition (a sell out) in dublin 1997. since then hehas been recording , inn a personal way, the ever-changing moods and light of the west.


“Aerach” is a word that could describe his work. There is a wonderful sense of space in these paintings, a tranquility where nothing is hurried. He moves effortlessly from the small details, such as a door ofa shed, to wide panoramas. In doing so, he shows us some iconic images like Conors Pass in West kerry and Lettergesh in Connemmara, but most paintings in this collection refelct his motto, “Within the ordinary lies the extraordinary.” Tjhese landscapes have a timeless quality and are beautifully illuminated by sun peeking through moving clouds, creating dramatic skyscapes.


“No poet, no painter can ever fully capture all that is contained in the landscape. In fleeting moments when our pride takes a grip we feel we have it – we've got it, but then the landscape merely chamnges and invites us further in. The lanscape surely is a reflection of the divine. It is eternal.


As a humble painter I can only stand in awe, in reverence before it and merely scratch at it's surface. The fleeting light and shadows are divine whispers to us. We only have to sit in silence and listen. Everyone has their own way of swimming in the landscape. Mine is to try reflect it on canvas.”


-Liam Jones, 2006
