Seascapes – New visions for 2020 and beyond

If the 2020 lockdowns caused turbulence across all sectors of society, it created a tsunami for artists of all disciplines. These are unique times – income disappears; performances and exhibitions are cancelled; old ways of living are rendered obsolete.

However, it also facilitates or even forces new growth. In John’s case, it brought forward his Seascapes series, sparked by a conversation with an old friend and given oxygen by the need for some sense of serenity that many people craved as our normality was upended.

Each painting in the Seascapes series has been lovingly created using a limited palette and features yachts interspersed with orange buoys in the foreground, with a different location as the backdrop. He has simplified the subjects in order to focus on the palette and bring a sense of calm and serenity to the viewer.

The original  Seascapes series is now being supplemented on a occasional basis by new marine works in John’s unique style.

As well as the original paintings in the Seascapes series, 12 Limited Edition, Gicleé prints of selected paintings are also available. Each print is signed, numbered and titled by John. The image size is 28 by 40cm approx on ivory mount measuring 40 by 50cm. Each print is priced at €165.
