Cornelius Browne

Artist profile

Cornelius Browne "An Invite to Eternity"

.Glasgow-born, Cornelius Browne grew up in Donegal, where his early paintings were encouraged by artist Derek Hill, who also fostered the Tory Island School of painters. A graduate of the National College of Art & Design, Browne is now a passionate advocate of plein air painting, teaching workshops and writing articles on the topic. Painted entirely outdoors, in all weathers, at all times of day and night, Browne's new solo exhibition "An Invite to Eternity" takes its title from the nature poet John Clare, an acknowledgement both of the painter's humble rural background and the extreme immersion in nature necessary to produce these distinctive oil paintings. Further echoing Clare, the exhibition charts a calendar year in a small coastal village and its environs in West Donegal. Simultaneously, these paintings look back across time, to when human settlement began in this area over five thousand years ago; and into deep time, to the origins of this wild landscape over six hundred million years ago.
