Based in Sandycove, County Dublin, Edward Fox Doyle works mainly in representational style, but from a unique perspective. Having been a profession painter for more than 20 years, his works are both vibrant and colourful – using a mixed media of oils, acrylics and inks.
Following the old French tradition of painting on any available canvas, he employs the use of a variety of materials, from paper to canvas, wood and even cardboard: the results are both interesting and complex, resulting an an absence of movement or life form – yet lending a quiet tranquility to our sometimes chaotic and always-moving world.
With inspirations derived from his natural surroundings and changing aspects brought about by different hues of light, his vision can move deftly from a rich summer forest, to a moonlight marshland or a dry autumn field. Hugely motivated by his many travels abroad, he can depict an arid landscape, a village scene in Goa or a dazzling African sunset. His interpretation of mosaic in his Alhambra Collection is technically fascinating and a mark of fastidious precision in his approach to his subject matter.
Having served as Artist in Residence at Inistioge Art Centre in Kilkenny, for over six years, Edward has now permanently relocated to County Dublin, where his latest works are being warmly welcomed by our audience.
