For the past twenty years John Kingerlee has lived and painted on the Beara Peninsula in West Cork. During this period he has evolved a technique of painting whereby layers of pigment are applied one over the other, forming thick strata of paint akin to the rocky landscape visible outside his studio window. Each layer requires considerable time to dry and in pictures such as the present work, which can have as many as fifty to one hundred coats of paint, the entire process is lengthy and deliberative.
