Biography

Benedict Doonan was born in 1967 and is based in Somerset. His paintings cover a variety of subjects and themes. He paints landscapes, often at dusk or at night trying to instil a narrative atmosphere into his work. His landscape paintings feature both urban and rural environments, but with very few exceptions feature man made structures. He states “I am always interested in the dynamic created by buildings, the earth and the sky. When I look at renaissance painting my eyes are drawn towards the buildings and rooftops, the celebration of perspective.” Benedict has showcased work at the Walcott Chapel Gallery and Bath Contemporary Art in Bath. Byard Art exclusively exhibits his work at our gallery and major art fairs.
