Sun Rush is an Oil on Canvas painting of a sun set scene in Provence, France. The painting gets the name sun rush, firstly from the warm summer sunset and also the warm glow from the rushes and the old derelict church wall.
Eugene studied art at Crawford College of Art Cork before in Ireland in 2000. His work has been exhibited in Ireland, England, America and France and is represented internationally in public, corporate and private collections.
In order to find my own original style I encorporated both old and new techniques in my work. My present work deals with the idea of the viewer interacting with the work visually. This is achieved by abstracting some fundemental elements from the painting like for example colour, tone and form. This in fact does go against the grain of a traditional painter. But in my opinion it gives the painting a harmony: all the information is'nt there so therefore the viewer must involve himself or herself into the piece.
Eugene has had many exhibitions one of which was a one man show in Innishannon in West cork in 2009 Private Collectors GalleryAlso enjoyed a group show entitled Fledglings in the Lavitts Quay gallery in Cork City, Ireland in 2009. Lavitt Gallery
Over the years Eugene has exhibited work in England America and France.
