Philip Flanagan at Belén Ferrier, Geneva, Switzerland

In March 2013 Philip Flanagan will exhibit fourteen acrylics on canvas with Belén Ferrier.

The finished works, although abstract, are landscape based, but I suggest rather than describe the topography of the landscape, selecting elements which sum up the whole. The paintings are a contour of my feelings, an emotional response to a setting, a psychological territory, where colour and line are used to convey a mood or energy that embodies the territory traversed. I strive to capture the inherent light of the landscape through a process of reduction, searching for an overall simplicity that will convey its true meaning.

Bronze Portrait of Richard Griffiths, Actor

This is a portrait I made of Richard several years ago.
I was very sorry to learn of his death, he was a wonderful person to be with, clever and humourous.

Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast - Outside and Between, Belfast Festival at Queens

Outside and Between examines how perceptions of artists from Northern Ireland are informed by the context in which their work is seen, categorized and discussed. Taking in to account not only subject matter, genre and materiality but also preconceptions about antecedents, practice and platform, the exhibition examines how artists relate to and are identified with Northern Ireland. 

The exhibition features works by Michael Alcorn, St. Claire Allen, Betty Brown, Gerard Devlin, Philip Flanagan, Willie Heron,Tony Hill, Terry McAllister, Mark McGreevy, Rory Moore, Philip Mussen, Eddie Rafferty, Martin Wedge & Derek Wilson. 

Shân McAnena is an art historian and curator, director of the The Naughton Gallery and the Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen’s.

The exhibition continues until 24th November 2012 and the Gallery opening hours are: Tuesday – Friday 10.30 am – 5.30 pm & Saturday 10.30 am – 4.00pm
