Provenance

Allow Rod’s imagery to trigger your untapped memories, emotions and desires.

Created in south County Kerry, Rod Coyne’s painting “Famine Village Ruins, East”, depicts Cill Rialaig in a blaze of colour. Swishing grass stalks wave furiously in surreal landscape of riotous reds, salmons and hot pinks. Coyne’s painting would make the perfect addition to any home or office for art collectors and landscape fans alike. It is signed on the front and carries a date and inscription by the artist on the reverse.

“On this day I already had a full week of plein air painting under my belt while on residency at the Cill Rialaig International Artists retreat in Co. Kerry. I had been honing a surreal approach to depicting the landscape, my M.O. was to replace Ireland’s forty shades of green with forty shades of red instead. But I was determined to hold onto the colours of the stone and sky in their natural state. This would give the painting a simultaneously familiar yet other worldly presence.

The sun was shining. I was in the zone. I can barley remember the act of painting. Suddenly I was done. I achieved flow that day” – Rod Coyne.
