‘Pegasus’ is an oil on canvas based on the sculpture in Powerscourt House & Gardens, Co. Wicklow.
Recalling early-childhood experiences and discovery this work celebrates the limitless horizons and boundless optimism of youth. The invaluable experience of encountering and engaging with art in the community fosters and nurtures visual learning.
The painting is an interplay between positive and negative space, utilising a simple compositional structure and built-up with numerous layers of glazing over a detailed under-drawing. Art elements of form, colour, tonality and composition are carefully considered and incorporated.
