John Shinnors: Shy Fox, Sixty-Six Sheep, 2016-17, oil on panel, 28 x 29 cm | John Shinnors: New Paintings | Friday 2 June  – Saturday 24 June 2017 | Taylor Galleries

Taylor Galleries is delighted to present New Paintings by Limerick painter John Shinnors, his tenth solo show with the gallery.

Featuring his usual idiosyncratic three-tone colour scheme, this suite of fourteen paintings in oil includes many of the familiar, semi-abstract motifs that have been appearing in Shinnors’ work since the early 1980s – badgers, scarecrows, cattle, lighthouses, kites, skunks – alongside experimentations with perspective and depth.

Born in Limerick in 1950, John Shinnors studied drawing and painting at Limerick School of Art & Design (LSAD) from 1970 to 1972. He has shown his work in many solo and group exhibitions in Ireland and has been involved in supporting the visual arts in Ireland through the Shinnors Scholarship for an MA in Curatorial Studies in partnership with LIT, LSAD and Limerick City Gallery of Art and the Shinnors Drawing Award at LCGA. A member of Aosdána, his work is represented in private, public and corporate collections in Ireland and abroad, including The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Ulster Folk & Transport Museum, National Self-Portrait Collection and the Contemporary Irish Art Society, among others.
