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 held his first one-man exhibition in Dublin over thirty years ago. Since then he has been recording, in a personal way, the ever-changing moods and light of the West.
There is a wonderful sense of space in these paintings, a tranquillity where nothing is hurried.These landscapes have a timeless quality and are beautifully illuminated by the sun peeking through moving clouds, creating dramatic skies..
Liam himself says of this work: "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."
