 Painted over the course of a 5 year period, this painting is one of a series featuring the old Cistercian Abbey of Dunbrody [in County Wexford]. Oil on gesso panel, the painting highlights a forgotten history of an ancient Irish landscape that historically looked to northern France and the continent beyond for it's cultural traditions. 

This painting is of a modest scale (15"x 24") and within these confines you will find elements of abstraction juxtaposed with a more naturalistic approach, creating a distinctive style that somehow manages to accentuate the tumbledown nature of the subject matter.
