Turning Corners | Gerard Byrne

Turning Corners | Gerard Byrne


We are delighted to have artist Gerard Byrne's Turning Corners, a truly beautiful collection of paintings all produced during the Covid19 pandemic.

Turning Corners features illustrations of Byrne’s complete lockdown output of 150 stunning artworks and, along with accompanying text by Susan Stairs, offers a rare and captivating visual record and time capsule of our national topography, both urban and rural, during a period of global significance.

These outstanding Modern Impressionist works include scenes in leafy Ranelagh and Donnybrook; the lush cherry blossoms of Herbert Park and Portobello; Grand Canal’s water reflections; the National Botanic Gardens; the coastal villages of Dalkey and Sandycove; and the Dingle Peninsula on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Byrne also treats us to an arresting series of figurative works which showcase his intriguing imaginative process during the winter lockdown when plein air painting was not possible.
