THE BLANK CONTEMPORARY ART
99 WORDS WITH NOEL MCKENNA
The painting is about where the land meets the sea which as a location lends itself to drama but not always. In Road by Sea the sea is flat, road is empty. I enjoy looking at the sea, but do not enjoy being in or on it that much.
The painting went through many stages, alterations, a sail boat was once on the horizon, a directional sign on the road and a bicycle rider once on the road.
