EAMON REGAN FROM CORBODA TO CREEVAGH EXHIBITION OPENING 3 OF DECEMBER TO 8

From Corboda to Creevagh’ centres around contrasting the artist’s visual experience of two very definite and distinct landscapes – The Mediterrranean location of Corboda in Southern Spain and Creevagh in North Mayo on The Wild Atlantic Way. Eamon explores the difference in the quality of light and the way it interacts with the indigenous vernacular buildings within the local landscape. In addition, he examines the abstract architectural shapes of farm buildings in the West of Ireland and contrasts them with the local Andalucian buildings of the Mediterranean.
 
Regan studied Art and Architecture at the Kuntstakademy Art School in Copenhagen and at the School of Architecture at UCD. His work centres on the landscape, both vernacular and modern. He is a figurative painter, influenced by American artists such as Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyatt and the Spanish artist Joaquin Sorolla.
