Gerard Byrne's en plen air oil paintings and charcoal drawings reflect the artist's everlasting love for architecture, plants, city scape and landscape. The most recent collection was inspired by his painting trips over this summer to Croatia, Spain and Poland. Lush greenery of exotic palm leaves captured in contemporary yet impressionistic style will be showcased mid December at FocusLDN Winter Exhibition in London's Menier Gallery.
Gerard Byrne's interest in diverse themes invites numerous exhibition opportunities and determines a choice of international and UK events he participates in. In the upcoming contemporary artists' group show 'Focus LDN Winter Exhibition' in Menier Gallery, London Gerard explores the beauty of architectural plants, while late summer painting trip to eastern Poland focused on the rural landscape. On 16th and 17th July Gerard was participating for the very first time in Pintar Rapido London, the UK's biggest plein air painting festival winning outstanding 2nd Prize in a 'professional artists' category. First weekend of September he was capturing picturesque Amsterdam's famous canals competing in the following Pintar Rapido Amsterdam festival, resulting in the exhibit of two fabulous art pieces extraordinarily completed within just one day.
