Red Hot Stocking Fillers in Dublin.

New Works dressed in Red

Creating new “Rod Sees Red” canvases is always a pleasure for Rod Coyne. And knowing that these paintings will be going straight to exhibition makes it doubly sweet. So it’s no wonder that the artist got all excited when asked to join a Dublin Christmas show just as he was finishing his new series.

 

Christmas Stocking Fillers 2018

“Christmas Stocking Fillers 2018’, is a unique show at The Doorway Gallery where all the canvases are the same size and all under €500. This spectacular exhibition provides you with the rare opportunity to begin collecting works of art by your favourite artist, at very affordable prices. All of the gallery’s artists, throughout the year, have been working tirelessly towards this show, creating new work. This exhibition runs till 24th December 2018.

 

“Crimson County”

Based on a Co. Mayo landscape Rod Coyne’s “Crimson County” 20x25cm, acrylic on canvas is a familiar yet decidedly odd Irish landscape.

“Downpatrick (Red)head”

Coyne’s “Downpatrick (Red)head” is a modest 20x25cm but packs the punch of a heavyweight. It’s acrylic on canvas and has been dropping jaws since it went up on the wall in Dublin’s iconic Doorway Gallery.

“Achill Rouge”

It’s no coincidence that the Wild Atlantic Way has been the darling of Irish tourism. Celebrating this wild beauty Rod’s “Achill Rouge” bows its head in awe. It’s a mere 20x25cm, painted in acrylic on canvas, and could be yours for €475.

“Copper Red Coast”

Not far south of the artists home Waterford’s “Copper Red Coast” is a gem in Ireland’s Ancient East. And Rod’s, 20x25cm, acrylic on canvas depicts it in full glory.

“Red Road”

It’s hard to image that the “Red Road” is not derived from the red planet, yet it truly is an Irish landscape given Coyne’s other treatment.

“Red County”

“Turning the landscape red has allowed me an opportunity to emphasize the Irish Sea’s natural palette of greens and the juxtaposition of the the two colours transfixes the viewer’s eye, “ according to Rod Coyne. This vibrating colour collision is nowhere more apparent than in his “Red County” painting, 20x25cm, acrylic on canvas.
