David Crone

David Crone David Crone is among the most highly regarded and influential painters working in Northern Ireland. Landscape has long been his primary subject matter; having spent decades painting fractured images of Belfast city, his mastery as a colourist came to the fore when he moved to a rural setting in the mid-1990s. Characterised by his incisive curiosity, Crone's paintings are animated by visual tensions, rhythms and encounters that challenge the viewer. Poet Michael Longley writes that “His watchful, edgy, ambiguous work suggests that everything - from wild flower to boulder, from graffito to stone cross - is provisional. David Crone's wonderful paintings commemorate the interim."

Every day an exhibition, a film, a song, and happy news…
