West Cork Artist Aidan O’Regan, has established a reputation as a colourist of immense ability. A love of nature and an ability to deconstruct his environs to its constituent colours, allows him to interpret the coast and hinterland of West Cork in a fashion so subtle that the viewer is immediately engaged.
His works are inspired by the compass of light that exists across the seasons of West Cork landscape. From the piercing blues of direct summer light and panoramic purples and pinks of a June evening, warm comfortable autumnal reds and oranges, long cold steel winter light, all of these producing the subtlest of nuances from Aidan’s palette.
“The challenge of making the impossible work, colours that should never lie together, that shouldn’t work, making these colours come together is where I see triumph”
