Paintings from Sea and Coast - Exhibition at the Blasket Centre Dunquin, Dingle, Co Kerry 4th May 2019

Paintings from Sea and Coast is a collection I have been working on over a number of years, reflecting images of my traves in a Naomhóg ( a West Kerry currach).

Taking part in a sea journey from Dublin to Santiago de Compostela was a profound and inspiring experience.

The adventure was fimed in a documentary film “The Camino Voyage”.

Paintings are like journeys for me. One of the most challenging parts of composing a painting is reaching the moments of uncertaintity. 

It’s the line between giving up or struggling on, somewhat similar to what I experienced on these naomhóg voyages.

I don’t consider my paintings to be ever finished, but rather ongoing expressions.

Liam Holden - Visual Artist

Liam developed a love of the sea that was to have a profound influence on his journey as a painter. Water remains his principal inspiration - horizons, islands, boats and coastlines all feature in his paintings. Liam works intuitively, applying paint in layers to create texture and depth of colour, and will revisit a work time and time again until satisfied with its emotional resonance.
