Landscape Work

Interpretations of the local landscape, from representational to abstract, form a major part of the work on show at the gallery. This range of work shows the very different personal responses of these artists to the surrounding beauty. Visitors to the gallery can choose which interpretation they find best matches their experience of the area. Bustling streetscapes by John Lawrence capture the town of Kenmare. Rosemary Purcell’s mountainscapes show the changing palette of colour on her doorstep. The sea is never far away in either Gary Benfield’s wild seascapes or Joop Smits ever-changing shores. Weather defines this area of the south-west coast and its mists and moods are captured perfectly by Gearoid O’Shea. Tim Goulding paints the rocky outcrops of Beara and brings them to an almost spiritual level in work such as ‘Revelation’.

Other Work

Since its opening, the Purcell Gallery has also introduced artists from outside the area.
