  • Exhibited: 'Martin Gale: Family and Friends', Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaion exhibition which toured regional art centres, February - August 1982, catalogue no. 12, lent by the artist
  • Literature: Niall Fallon, Fine Arts and Antiques column, The Irish Times, 21 September 1991, reproduced
  • Mystery and intrigue are the hallmark of Martin Gale’s paintings and one can never be impassive in front them. Always the artist delights in posing as many questions as answers in his pictures, for in them things are never quite what they appear to be. Good Evening, a relatively youthful work, is a prime example of this. What is happening? As we look out of the window are we literally observing a ‘good evening’, the close of a fine day, or are we looking at the house beyond prepared, perhaps, to bid welcome to visitors? All is pristine in the cosy interior of the room in which we, as spectators, stand. The warmth of the softly textured and highly patterned curtain contrasts with the coolness of the exterior which, despite the warm, welcoming lights of the house opposite, is dominated by the ink-black, inhospitable tracery of the leafless winter trees which occupy the middle distance and so act as a barrier between us and the neighbourhood house which is the ostensible subject of the composition. The title of the exhibition in which this picture was first exhibited, ‘Martin Gale: Family and Friends’, suggests that it is autobiographical, but of this one cannot be certain. In the strident colours and the sharply defined forms and shapes of the window frame and the branches of the trees beyond, the influences of Pop Art and Hard Edge painting, which held sway on Gale in his early days as an artist, are clear and the sense of tranquillity mixed with unease, which is all-pervasive, is characteristic of his oeuvre in general.

LANDSCAPE WITH STANDING FORM
LANDSCAPE WITH STANDING FORM
John Kingerlee (b.1936)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 25 April 2006 / 21

Published Estimate: €8,000-12,000

Price Realised: €10500

  • Signature: oil on board
  • Medium: signed in monogram lower left
  • Dimensions: 51 by 30cm., 20 by 12in.
  • This serene landscape belongs to a body of recent work Kingerlee describes as his “white-outs”, in which he adds large quantities of white to his paints in order to exploit the subtlety of reduced colour. He creates what are essentially timeless and meditative free-form spaces, uncluttered by sharply defined shapes that would tie the viewer down to the ‘here and now’. Parallels - if any are needed – can be drawn with the barren shores of the Beara Peninsula where the artist lives, a truly elemental landscape in which views of islands and mountains can be obliterated within minutes by weather systems coming in off the Atlantic. In the left foreground of the picture stands a cloaked figure (or possibly a pair of figures), who is about to ascend a slope leading to the edge of the void. The figure acts as a proxy for the viewer, inviting us to share in his contemplation of the infinitude beyond. The cool, dark tones with which the standing form has been painted provide a foil for the soft whites, pinks, blues and yellows of the background, achieved by means of a combination of palette knife work and stippling with a bristle brush. Kingerlee’s reduction and distillation of the essentials of landscape into a miasma of highly textured, variegated colour constitutes an achievement that seems unique within contemporary painting. When the ethereal content is combined, as here, with a technique relying on a build-up of countless layers of pigment, one is hard pressed not to conclude that Kingerlee has effectively reinvented landscape painting.

  • Signature: acrylic and collage on board

  • Dimensions: 52 by 77cm., 20.5 by 30.5in.
  • No. 693 in the artist's ouevre.After 1973, Tony O’Malley’s palette was influenced for many years by long visits to the Bahamas, where his wife Jane’s family lived. Working in a nature based abstract idiom since the early sixties, his response to light was always a core aspect of his practice. Although work from the fifties and sixties such as Ripe Cornfield in the Wind (1966) show earlier uses of bright colour, once visits to the Bahamas and later Lanzarote became habitual, he seemed to develop two palettes, one Cornish and Irish and the other Bahamian. Noon is an interesting example of a work which carries the colour sensitivities we associate with both places. We can surmise that Noon reflects the artist’s opportunities to work outdoors in the Bahamas, even if it is a studio piece. In its open book format and particular shades of yellow, it seems to share a kinship with the well known Bahamian Butterfly (1979). But this smaller and very delightful work is quite austere and is resonant of St Ives works in the use of the quieter colours. Vertical and angular shapes strongly but lightly assert the frontality of the support. Contrasts of dark and light colours, of bluey-blacks and pinks and yellows, seem bracketed and supported by glimpses of rich red. The asymmetries slowly work on the eye of the viewer and the softer washy pinks hold their own in this little gem, executed just before O’Malley became widely known in Ireland.

  • Poet and painter Jack Pakenham was born in Dublin and moved to Belfast as a young man. He took a BA at Queen’s University in 1959 and went on to teach English, write poetry and paint. He held his first one-man exhibition in the Georgian Rooms, Dublin in 1960 and shortly thereafter Tom Caldwell became his agent. Other shows followed at the Orchard Gallery, Derry (1990), Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast (1995) and more recently at the Fenderesky Gallery, Belfast (2004). He has participated in numerous IELA and similar group exhibitions and was a founder member of Group 63. Roderic Knowles describes him as adopting a “figurative expressionist approach in dealing with the surrounding drama of today’s Ulster - and also the felt universal drama in the Beckettian sense, of isolation and anxiety” (Contemporary Irish Art: A Documentation, 1982, page 226).
