‘New Works’ is a series of oil paintings inspired by secret places, from Sligo’s Hidden Glen at the foot of Knocknarea to rocky western coves to an old Dublin garden loft which holds childhood memories for the artist. Lush trees tops and cascading ivy give way to high walls and musty sunlight in this vibrant collection from one of Ireland’s most regarded contemporary landscape painters.

Seamus O’ Byrnewas born in Dublin in 1957. Primarily self taught, he paints in oils and acrylics, principally figurative, with a keen interest in nature, the landscape and wild places. He has won awards and exhibited widely in Ireland since the early eighties, and overseas, including exhibitions with the RHA, RUA, Celtic Vision, Figurative Image, Iontas, Oireachtas, Independent Artists, the RSA in Scotland and Abu Dhabi. O’Byrne’s art appears in collections at Goodbodys, GPA, Smurfit School of Business UCD, HSE, Henniges Group, and in private collections across the world.
