Kingdom Come – Rod’s Kerry roots
The relationship between artist and gallery is committed and long term and started when Coyne’s work was spotted by Dr. Noelle Campbell-Sharpe way back in the year 2000. After sending him on a short residency to Cill Rialaig, Rod (having just returned from a decade painting in Germany) was offered his first Irish solo show in Dublin’s Origin Gallery.
Rod’s first visit to the Kerry residency, in the year 2000, opened a door for his work which would influences and drives him to this very day. The artist talks about a sense of genetic memory he feels when working on the home turf of his mother’s family. And having left Germany on a mission to engage with the Irish landscape Ballinskelligs Bay proved the perfect springboard to this new artist conversation.
