An exhibition of paintings by well-known Kinvara based artist, Frank Sanford will be opened on Saturday 30th March by Seadna Toibin in the Russell Gallery, New Quay, Burren, Co. Clare at 6pm.
" Boats and trees and buildings, I can do all that stuff. What I try to paint is nothin." Frank Sanford.
This exhibition is further affirmation of his painterly ability and honesty in defining and understanding the environment where he lives.
His interpretation of the landscape is distinctive and characterized by the lack of details yet a total ‘presence’ and participation in its definition as a place. Mountains and water on the edge of the Burren are depicted in all its beauty and wildness with a strong presence of distance and space.
The Burren’s energy has attracted painters, writers, musicians, photographers and poets over many years: an extraordinarily creative place, of which the Kinvara area is a very particular hub, where the artist plays an immense part, on all levels in the community.
Exhibition runs until 6th May.
