Oliver Comerford

Oliver Comerford - surface and surfaceOliver Comerford’s Large scale landscape paintings look impressively photo real from a distance but his painstakingly strict process of painting is more raw and basic than that. Oliver uses only very few colours in his paintings, in some cases only 3. His process of painting is based more around removing paint than applying. Paint is scraped, rubbed, scratched and sanded off to give an incredible variety of tone and colour from such a limited palette.  All Oliver Comerford’s paintings are based on photographs he takes on his travels. Patrick T Murphy of the RHA described Comerford’s romantic realism as a ‘blue note of melancholy’ deriving from ‘the truck stops, bends, and airports of our itinerant lives’.
