KENNETH WEBB | Danu's Realm

KENNETH WEBB | Danu's Realm


36" x 24" / 91 x 61 cms


Oil on Canvas


Inspired by his beloved Connemara wetlands that he missed so badly throughout the 'lockdown years'. Here the sky broils a multitude of emotions above the silhouetted land that in places succumbs to the water. Danu is the Celtic goddess of Nature, particularly the sky and water, both of which here dominate the land. Thus this painting is a fitting partner to Webb's [biblical / dystopian] series of a few years ago, where Nature fights back against Man's ruinous dominion over the land. At one point as he created this work, Webb felt he could see Danu's face in the sky, before the strength of her passion blurred it.  

  • Kenneth Webb is one of Ireland’s leading painters. Brought up in post-war Britain, from a young age Kenneth was inspired by the Gloucestershire countryside where he grew up. In 1974 Kenneth purchased the Ballinaboy Studio in Connemara on the west coast of Ireland, and this wonderful place has offered a multitude of inspiration to Kenneth for over forty years. Kenneth’s magnificent ethereal landscapes of Connemara, his colourful and textured paintings of poppies and his shimmering visions of his favoured waterlily pool are instantly recognisable for their vibrancy and gestural brushstrokes. So unique and striking are his paintings that over the past decade with our gallery, his work has amassed an international following culminating with the seminal exhibition Kenneth Webb at 90. Despite his 91 years, Kenneth is as prolific as ever and his work continues to explore creative boundaries.
