Liam Jones

Liam Jones was born in Ballina, Co. Mayo, Ireland.

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. 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. 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 tranquility where nothing is hurried. Liam moves effortlessly from the small detail to wide panoramas. In doing so, he shows us some conic images, but most of the images in this collection reflect his motto, “Within the ordinary lies the extraordinary”.  The artist himself says, “no Poet, no Painter can ever fully capture all that is contained in the landscape.  In fleeting moments when our pride takes a grip we feel we have it – we’ve got it, but then the landscape merely changes and invites us further in. The landscape surely is a reflection of the divine. It is eternal. As a humble Painter I can only stand in awe, in reverence before it and merely scratch at its surface.”
