Conor McGuires luminous, exquisitely textured paintings pull viewers into virtually timeless visions of his native West of Ireland. Hoping to convey the regions isolation and relatively unchanged picturesqueness, his portraits and landscapes, local characters, pristine nature and traditional music. 

From his portraits of musicians, where musical tones seem to ripple over surrounding spaces and architectures. In paintings of streets, towns, fields and seascapes, meanwhile, a less overt but no less powerful cadence develops from repeating shapes, shifting forms and alternating colours.
