More About this Item


Description: Charles Tyrrell (b.1950)P2.08Oil on aluminium, 26 x 26cm (10¼ x 10¼'')Signed and dated 2008 versoProvenance: With the Taylor GalleriesCharles Tyrrell was born in Trim, Co. Meath, Ireland, in 1950. He studied painting at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, graduating in 1974. His work is represented in all major Irish collections and in 1982 he was made a member of Aosdána. He lives and works in Allihies on the Beara Peninsula in Co. Cork. This landscape is fundamental to his work as a painter, remotely sequestered against the wild Atlantic coast. However, the relationship between his environment and his paintings is not a straightforward case of image and representation. It is rather that Tyrrell’s abstract canvases are imbued with the sense of the landscape’s structures, exploring its fundamental shapes and forms, which take on a profound simplicity of expression. Built on a geometric grid, traversing the canvas into sections, a delicate but dynamic equilibrium is played out between the horizontal and vertical lines. In this manner he explores the more traditional aspects of landscape painting, boundaries, horizon lines, perspectives. While his work moves beyond resemblance it still focuses on questions of identifying our landscape through patterns, textures or colours, all of which frame, in the form of a literal and metaphorical grid, the act of perception. He has just had a successful exhibition at the Taylor Galleries Dublin.
