“Born in Norfolk, England, in 1979, I moved to Clare in 1999 and started painting professionally in 2001. As a photorealistic Artist, my work is focused on still life and figure painting. From my own perspective, the subject matter of a painting is less important than its treatment, but my practice is rooted to direct observation.
My current work is concerned with minimalist realism, paring down representation to the essential, without sacrificing the integrity of the subject. ‘Nocturne’, is as much about what is not painted, as what is painted. The subjects here are mere flickers of light, like the perception of ghosts. The intention is that the beholder’s eye will unconsciously supply what cannot be seen, giving the subject a perceived solidity that is illusory. “ Adam Pomeroy
