This is a stunning piece of Original Irish Art, a Mixed Media Painting of an Abstract Head and Body By the artist John Kingerlee, who has signed it to the bottom left, please see photos. Born in Birmingham in 1936, John Kingerlee is a self-taught artist who moved to the Beara Peninsula in Ireland to live and paint. He had his first solo exhibition at the Ewan Phillips Gallery in London (1967) and his works have been shown across the U.
Ireland, the US and around the world. In 2010 a book on the artist was published titled, The Whole Planet is a Garden, The Genius of John Kingerlee, written by Edmund P.
This lovely original painting by John is typical of his mixed media style. The'canvas' is a sheet from a 1977 diary, which incidentally may well be the year it was painted. He has then painted an abstract head, face and body on to the diary page using watercolour, gouache and pastels to achieve the finished painting. Wonderfully atmospheric and dark, typical of him, it's instantly recognisable as one of his works and a great piece to have in any collection, and an absolute must for anyone looking for an original John Kingerlee at a reasonable price. It's mounted and framed within a black coloured wooden frame and is behind glass ready to hang and enjoy displaying beautifully.
It measures 49 cm x 43 cm including the frame and looks fabulous. This item is in the category "Art\Paintings". The seller is "waringfield" and is located in this country: GB.
