Irish artist Ken Smith, Waterford


Working primarily in oils, his works feature predominantly marine scenes. Having lived all his life close to the picturesque Copper Coast, Ken is rarely short on inspiration. His local Garrarus and Tramore beaches are amongst his favourite subjects, and his work charts the delicate ecology and rocks of the seashore as well as the rapidly changing rhythms of the sea. Ken�s paintings rejoice in the immediacy and rough charm of the maritime landscape.

In developing his seascapes Ken's considerable skill for pictorial composition and aesthetic balance comes to the fore. He spends many long hours carrying out the demanding groundwork for each piece, walking his favourite coastline and exploring, photographing and sketching his subjects. Light plays a major role in his work, the way it colours and shapes form, the way it can reflect and refract, creating a dazzling bright or a mysterious dark. Each carefully crafted painting captures the elegance and power of the sea, artfully echoing the fragile tranquillity of the seashore and the awesome might of the ocean.
