BIO: Liam Jones

 

Liam Jones was born in Ballina, Co.Mayo. The wild beauty of the surrounding countryside was a powerful catalyst in moving him into the world of Landscape painting. Liam Jones landscapes have a timeless quality and are beautifully illuminated by the sun peeking through clouds, creating dramatic skyscapes. He is widely travelled having worked in Europe and America, but he was continually drawn back to this country and to the West of Ireland in particular.

 

He held his first one-man exhibition in Dublin over thirty years ago. Since then he has been recording, in a personal way, the ever-changing moods and light of the West. “Aerach” is a word that could describe his work. There is a wonderful sense of space in these paintings, a tranquillity where nothing is hurried. He moves effortlessly from the small detail, such as the door of the shed, to wide panoramas. In doing so, he shows us that which reflects his motto, “Within the ordinary lies the extraordinary”.
