Homeland

'I have always painted landscapes and the West of Ireland landscape in particular. There is an energyand a sense of timelessness in them that I try to get across in my paintings. But it's not just the landscape itself that I'm trying to capture, it's the feeling of being in it, being part of it. 'On the one hand these paintings are of the west of Ireland, old homesteads and farms, reminders of home for many people. This is a common thread

through all of my paintings. On the other hand this exhibition is about my own, new Homeland - Achill Island. We moved here last august permanently to live, having spent years coming on holidays. And so it is now home. And I have found myself wanting to find a way to express that in my paintings, to try and capture the simple pleasure of just being here! Being part of the landscapes and scenery that I paint. And so Homeland is also a record of my time here on Achill,with my family .'Padraig McCaul
