ArtNetdlr is proud to present a lecture by one of Ireland’s leading contemporary landscape painters Donald Teskey, who will discuss his large-scale landscape paintings which offer powerful images that bound with energy and force of nature.
He came to prominence as an artist through his skill as a draughtsman during the 1980s with several significant solo exhibitions. Since 1992 he has crafted out a substantial body of work as a painter of the landscape focusing on the ruggedness of the western seaboard. Sometimes working on a very large scale, his images reflect his response to the formal elements of composition; shape, form and fall of light. The result are powerful images of instantly recognisable parts of the Irish landscape with large abstract passages and surfaces which articulate the relentless, energetic and elemental force of nature.
Teskey’s work has been exhibited in the UK, USA, Canada, China, Germany, France, Finland and South Africa.Collections include the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Arts Council of Ireland, corporate and private collections worldwide. He is a member of Aosdana.
