Irish artist John Jermyn, Cork

'It is one thing to look at a wave but it is quite another to get inside of It. If such a delving can be achieved then it frees up the mind and imagination to explode with all the turbulence and even peacefulness that is inside our own minds. This wild environment provides us with a channel to open our minds and express and discover areas within ourselves that we never would have thought we possessed' John Jermyn John Jermyn lives on the edge of the cliff at Fennells Bay, Crosshaven in County Cork, Ireland. This proximity to nature has nurtured in him a fascination with landscape - the power, atmosphere, and mood that the seas, waterways and coastlines in spirit and generate.The paintings explore different aspects in contrasting settings varying from tranquil shorelines or a still canal to raging high seas, initially allowing a glimpse of its subject but then encouraging the viewer into something else, something bigger. Over the years, he has gained a deep understanding of the Irish landscape, its people and its past. This understanding has created a highly individual painter who is held in high regard by those who are familiar with his work, which is becoming increasingly well known. John's proximity to nature's elements provides him with the purest form of inspiration. 'Jermyn's use of brilliant orange into red, which is common through many of these works, provides a strange twist. This use of colour could be described as supernatural but it curiously pulls the observer closer in to the painting and then beyond.' Irish Times John himself, considers that working and exploring with this vibrancy in colour creates even greater opportunities to explore a subject. It lands one right in the middle of expressionism. 'The raw beauty of nature is constant, thereby enabling us all to link both past and present. It is my wish, that my work identifies with this and thus increases our awareness to appreciate, preserve and protect this environment.'
