Artists are at the heart of The Framemaker’s business. We work with artists on a daily basis, whether it be through our framing services, printing limited edition giclée prints, or selling their artwork in our showrooms. In particular, we take great pride in supporting and promoting local and Irish art. Thus, we stock original and limited edition art prints from a number of Irish artists. Find out more about some of these Irish artists and their work below.
John Jermyn lives on the edge of the cliff at Fennell’s Bay, Crosshaven in County Cork, Ireland. This proximity to nature has nurtured in him a fascination with landscape – the power, atmosphere, and mood that the seas, waterways and coastlines inspirit and generate. The paintings explore different aspects in contrasting settings varying from tranquil shorelines or a still canal to raging high seas, initially allowing a glimpse of its subject but then encouraging the viewer into something else, something bigger.
Over the years, he has gained a deep understanding of the Irish landscape, its people and its past. This understanding has created a highly individual painter who is held in high regard by those who are familiar with his work, which is becoming increasingly well known. John’s proximity to nature’s elements provides him with the purest form of inspiration. John himself, considers that working and exploring with this vibrancy in colour creates even greater opportunities to explore a subject. It lands one right in the middle of expressionism.
