Details: Original, unique signed painting. A 64-year relationship between an artist and a gallery is rare but that is how long the painter Kenneth Webb and the Kenny Gallery have been working together. Since he first walked in their door in Galway, both the gallery and the artistís work have gone through many changes. He has painted his way through a variety of themes and has a world-wide reputation. In all those years there has always been one constant in his work, colour! For Webb, even at 90 years of age, colour is still fresh, magical and exciting, and induces in him great bouts of painting. When an idea comes to him he cannot wait to get it down on canvas. His work has been described as Ďhomage to the secret life of colourí. He is a dedicated painter who is constantly driven to bold new experiments in painting. He started to teach his daughter Susan to paint when she was about three years old. She was a keen learner and held her first solo exhibition when she was just eighteen. Since then she has developed a serious reputation as an accomplished artist who specialises in equestrian paintings and studies of animals. She has been the recipient of many important commissions and still manages to find time to run The Irish School of Landscape Painting from her studio in Ashford, County Wicklow. This exhibition includes a return to some favourite subjects for Kenneth, the bogs and bog pools, the wildflowers and rocks of Connemara, and for Susan it is a series of images of horses racing, hunting, grazing, ponies in the landscape etc. Finally, a painting by 17-year-old Tanith is proof of her grandfatherís and auntís ability to pass on the gift to the next generation.
