Located in Dingle, Kerry, Ireland
The Greenlane Gallery is situated in the town of Dingle on the south west coast of Ireland. It was established in 1992 by Susan Callery.
Vibrant and distinctive contemporary Irish Art
The Greenlane Gallery showcases vibrant and distinctive contemporary Irish Art. The work takes its inspiration from our natural resources, incorporating the moods and beauty of the Dingle Peninsula which features prominently in the themes and subject matter of our artists. We work in partnership with the gallery artists to promote their work and present several exhibitions each year in addition to our seasonal collections.
The new expressionist style of Liam O’Neill focuses directly on capturing the energetic frenzy of his home West Kerry and its people. Inspiration for his work stems from his native place, its community and the daily happenings and events therein.
Michael captures and mythologises the West Kerry terrain triumphantly. He paints the untamed Wild Atlantic landscape with vivacity and dramatically charged energy.
Margo captures the totemic animals of her mother’s hillside on the Iveragh Peninsula. There is nothing sentimental about Banks’ ‘beasts of the field’. They shimmer and abound with edgy character: an elemental, mythic presence.
Niall is a draughtsman and drawing is fundamental to the art he makes. He doesn’t try to make definitive views of West Kerry but rather uses the elements of his environment to create his narrative.
Patsy’s influence is the landscape, the sea and the weather. Of her work, she says “Painting is alchemy, from light into pigment, no recipe, no rules and no guarantees. My work is always a visual response to a subject and I revel in the sensuality of paint.”
Liam describes his style as ‘abstract expression’. Holden’s work stems from memories of lobster fishing in Dingle in the 80s, and the sea in all its incarnations continues to be his main inspiration.
Heidi Wickham loves to draw. She says, ‘it is the un-ravelling of an object’s mystery, I try to keep all process to a minimum; it’s me, the reference material, the canvas and the charcoal’.
Aerial views and obscure perspective dominate the work of Tomas O’Ciobhain leaving a haunting impression of the land.
Primitive, naïve art influenced Deborah Donnelly towards a simplification of form. She prefers to capture the fleeting moment rather than meticulous detail.
Denise Hussey’s work reflects the relationship between herself and her environment during different periods of her life. It is about how she feels in the context of her surroundings at a given time.
Tom’s primary interest is in the quality and atmosphere of light, whether it is in the studio, the landscape, over the sea or down a street.
We also promote distinction in the field of sculpture in the medium of bronze.
The robust, Celtic inspired work of Hans Blank impresses.
Humour pervades the work of Bob Quinn. The one he’s working on is always his favourite!
After an initial career as a marine biologist, John Coll turned to his passion for making sculpture. His deep interest in our marine environment continues to inspire his works.
For Fidelma Massey the image of the moon speaks of cyclical time-rhythm; the way things change but remain the same.
Elongated women by James McCarthy glide gracefully through space.
Self-taught sculptor Kevin John works with steel, manipulating the often-recycled material into beautiful unique art forms infused with a touch of quirkiness.
Seamus Connolly captures the essence of his subject and brings it from inception through to finished bronze in his own foundry in Clare.
Scott seeks to establish a cohesive three dimensional form, based in the principles of the aesthetic, and wants to be able to view the piece in the round from every angle.
For Lone Beiter the primal patterns expressed by sea and wind in the contours of the mountains and on the beach, are integral. She captures these elements with a playful exuberance.
Lynne’s ceramic wildlife resonate with the natural world capturing the character and individuality of the creatures they reflect.
Doírín makes a wide range of objects from bowls and teapots to figurative sculptures.
Alan creates his jewellery from a combination of gold and silver, with many jewellery pieces incorporating kinetic parts; fish jump, birds swing, stones rock and hearts roll!
MaryK ‘s finely crafted jewellery come in Silver, Gold and Rose gold Vermeil featuring semi-precious gemstones and sparkling zirconia pave. One piece is never enough, it’s designed to be worn individually or layered, allowing you to combine metals, gemstones and symbols to tell your unique story.
