Cork born artist James C. Byrne will be exhibiting his collection of paintings in the Craft Gallery, Cahir, from Monday May 16th up to June 25th. The exhibition, entitled 'Horse of the Matter' consists of equine themed paintings James has created over the past 12 months. Brought up in the town Fermoy, James is a self taught artist. He works with pencil, charcoal and mainly acrylic paint on canvas which is varnished on completion. His work has narrowed and focused on Equine, Abstract, Expresionism and Figurative. With the equine works - which started out with wild mustang and of late thanks to the invite of a local horse farm The Grove - we observe and capture the athletic form and grace of these beautiful horses at various stages of their development, being close enough to touch them is quietly dramatic. www.jamescbyrneart.com
