Peter Burns

NOV 17 – DEC 1 2018
Artist: Peter Burns

Peter Burns is a Dublin born artist now living in Mayo and currently showing in a solo show, WAYFARER in Claremorris Gallery.

On the last day of his current exhibition, Sat Dec 1st, from 3 – 5pm, he will be talking about his work in conversation with Rosemarie Noone of Claremorris Gallery. Refreshments will be served, admission is free and all are welcome to attend.

"Burns' sculpture and paintings have a medieval quality of myth telling, they're charmingly painted with a long low note of apocalyptic despair."

MIKE SORGATZ

Peter has shown at Claremorris Gallery since he was a student. Over the past ten years he has established himself as one of the most important painters of his generation of artists in Ireland, having entered the international stage, now showing extensively in London, New York & Miami with Gibbons and Nicholas, as well as participating in a number of exhibitions in New York and London galleries.

 

Wayfarer is an at times lurid phantasmagoria of the artist’s internal life; an endless source of solace, pleasure, and stimulation.
