It is this shared love of the enchanting landscape of Connemara which brings together Kenneth and his daughter Susan and provides a rich link between them, with these sceneries forming a crucial part of their shared artistic vocabulary.

Susan’s strives to capture in paint the wonderful views and precious fleeting moments that pass with the changing light. The background is stunning, but Susan’s passion for horses means that the landscape takes on most meaning when ponies – a long-famous native to this area – inhabit it. She embraces the image of the horse in all its forms: as foal and full-grown, at leisure and ridden, the intimate pairing of solitary horse and its rider cantering through the edge of the waves, or a group excursion of inexperienced riders, ambling on steady steeds across the sands. All are lovingly interpreted; the artist’s emotional connection with this area breathes in every brushstroke.

So it is out in the West of Ireland, where the vibrant colours and ever changing lights and moods of nature’s landscapes join these connected souls in their quests to present their beautiful experiences of their world to us.
