    Descriptive info: Liam Jones | The Real Beauty of Ireland.. 05/10/2011.. 1 Comment.. Pricing | Major Factor in the sale of Irish Art.. 05/09/2011.. 0 Comments.. With discretionary spending continuing to decline and the economic and social impact of the recession hitting consumers every day,.. Irish Art.. galleries are now finding it extremely difficult to sell expensive originals.. Artists whose work is in the price range between 1000 and 5000 are the worst affected.. Under the 1000 a number of people can still muster up that amount for the special occasion.. Over the 5000 one is relying on people who have substantial money left after the collapse of the bank shares ,the property bubble and all the other bubbles that have exploded in the last four years leaving many unfortunate people penniless.. There is no doubt that things will change in the future and the market will recover, but.. galleries and.. Irish Artists.. will have to think  ...   we are in.. If you have any ideas on the matter then let the debate begin.. Add Comment.. , Ballina Co Mayo, is a family run business..

  • Title: Liam Jones - Caffreys Gallery
    Descriptive info: The Real Beauty of Ireland.. 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 traveled having worked in Europe and America, but he was continually drawn back to this country and to the West of Ireland in particular.. He held his first one-man exhibition in Dublin over thirty years ago.. Since then he has been recording, in a personal way, the ever-changing moods and light of the West.. Aerach is a word  ...   hurried.. These landscapes have a timeless quality and are beautifully illuminated by the sun peeking through moving clouds, creating dramatic sky.. The artist himself says of this collection 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 changes and invites us further in.. The landscape surely is a reflection of the divine.. It is eternal.. Most of his images reflect his motto "within the ordinary.. "..

  • Title: Conor McGuire - Caffreys Gallery
    Descriptive info: Conor McGuire was born in the west of Ireland and has chosen to live there as his influences are taken.. from the local rural landscape and townscape.. His technique can vary from realism.. to abstract depending on the subject, but he finds his artistic home to be in an impressionistic impasto technique.. He loves the quality and light in the west of Ireland and the shifting transience.. it brings to the subject matter.. He likes subjects that are timeless and speak to the.. viewer without requiring them to be political or analytical.. To his viewer Conor hopes they.. get some  ...   its friendliness and beauty.. The type of medium he uses depends on the type of painting he is working on; for landscape and townscape he uses.. oils and then acrylics for abstract work.. He favors lush textured brush strokes, allowing the paint.. to convey and suggest form and detail.. He does however `go in` and add detail with a sable brush but tries.. to keep it light and unlabored.. Conor avoids being overtly political or attempting social commentary but he hopes to convey a.. sense of joy of being alive and living a full life in a unique and beautiful place..

  • Title: Roisin Cunningham - Caffreys Gallery
    Descriptive info: Roisin Cunningham is a graduate student of the Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dun Laoghaire in Dublin.. She has a first class Masters Degree in Public Culture Studies from the college of Business and Humanities and a first class BA honors diploma in Fine Art from the school of Creative Arts.. She was born in Dublin in which she resides and operates from her studios in Dalkey and within The Market Studios off Capel Street in Dublin center.. She operates in a selection of media which includes sketching, painting, printing images, digital photography, video and audio installations.. "Constantly standing for something within myself yet always doubting my deepest beliefs".. Statement.. The most significant factor for me in artwork is to look at the actual art and observe something in  ...   all then it makes no sense to try and convince them.. Although most people want to understand and sometimes their interpretation and reaction can really surprise you.. My work has a central task in connecting to human relations and its conditions.. Our culture disjoints and disconnects us form our lives, we feel individual and alone, we tend to forget we are a collective and share many of the same feelings and desires.. Being human has a fatal quality which is kind of sad on some level while being absurd and humorous on another.. My work is about a conversation I have with myself, not lofty romantic notions or religiosity that can fix or change anything.. A constant questioning drives my work as an artist and every day is a fresh start..
