Statement

Bob Scott lives and works in North Kerry, Ireland, playing traditional Irish music on the flute and piano, and painting the people, buildings, and scenery. Most pictures are in oils, on either canvas or wood. His particular interests are in the colours and textures created by weathering, patterns that arise from the accidental juxtaposition of  natural foms, and the sense of the past being enshrined in the present in the particular area where he lives..

His paintings are presented in a crowded installation entitled "Scenery of North Kerry", which is housed in "Bealtaine", a unique and tiny gallery in a small village (Ballyduff) near the South West coast of Ireland. Being a play on the theatrical and artistic uses of the word "scenery", large "flats" lean against the wall, and paintings are stacked against breakwaters, hanging on the cliffs, and crammed  into  fish boxes. The floor is a ruined cottage on a beach, and the tide is coming in, swirling around three-dimensional constructions based on coastal artefacts, such as fish-boxes, breakwaters, encrusted posts, and lobster pots.

Visitors are welcome to visit the gallery in Ballyduff. Just e-mail bobscottnorthkerry@gmail.com. Bob is happy to discuss his work with anyone interested.
