Discover 'Resilience Through Colour' - the online exhibition curated by Gladwell & Patterson showcasing over 50 new works by Kenneth Webb.
Throughout Kenneth’s career, he has always been fascinated with colour, and here this exploration continues. Concerned with the changes he sees in the unique ecosystem that is the landscape of Connemara in the West Coast of Ireland, Kenneth has been called to present the landscape’s voice and tell its story through his paintings.
Connemara is a place that has enthralled and captivated Kenneth for his entire life. A life spent exploring this primal, unforgiving and raw landscape has allowed him to understand many of its nuances. He feels at one with the invisible spirit of the place and can feel its emotion. You see nature at its’ barest and most exposed here, and an acute observer of the world such as Kenneth is drawn to distinctly and individually depict these inescapable changes. The apocalyptic undertones in some of the works should provide a stark warning to us all. Our actions are changing the planet and pushing it to its limits, and it is fighting back.
