Aidan currently lives and works in west Sligo where he focuses primarily on observational painting. While working from a fixed position in the landscape or in a studio context he uses various tools to measure and register form. This method is the basis for his interest in recording the everyday as it exists. Painting from life allows him to respond with the immediacy of that direct experience. At present, his paintings are inquires into the unremarkable and the overlooked. Aidan has exhibited extensively across Ireland and his work is held in both private and public collections.


Vernacular is an exhibition of paintings and studies of landscape and still life. It’s an exploration of his locale and the subjects he encounters within it.
