Brendan Huntley

 

As the saying goes, eyes are the window to the soul.  Whether, in placing their eyes, Huntley uncovers the souls in his objects and paintings or gently guides them into being, it is in these apertures that their life force seems to be contained.  Before any appraisal of colour, form or texture can be made, you must let them look you in the eye.
