Pictures in "Bryan Kelly : Avoiding Reality"

7 Mar 2008 - 3 Apr 2008

Bryan Kelly retired to a cottage in picturesque Bunclody, Co. Wexford, having spent most of his working life as a designer in the U.K. Now, a collection of paintings comprises ‘Avoiding Reality’, his first solo exhibition to open at the Pigyard Gallery
Born in Ennis and educated in Limerick and at Leeds University, Bryan Kelly\'s work shows clearly his flair for pattern and eye for colour which led to a career in textiles. Gardens, walks, harbours and houses from rural Ireland are his themes for ‘Avoiding Reality’ and are treated in the flattened, decorative manner commonly associated with the so-called ‘naïve’ style.
Kelly’s gaily painted pictures are full of witty observation and mischievous distortion and they are a visual delight. On a wet, grey morning as you sift through your ESB bills and final demands they are sure to cheer you. To that extent, they do provide an alternate, happier reality - unfortunately, they are not available on prescription!
