TERRY SEARLE ~ The Rock - Acrylic on Canvas 80 x 100 cm
TERRY SEARLE ~ The Rock - Acrylic on Canvas 80 x 100 cm

Moving to Ireland in 1980 was the result of an increasing desire for a decisive change in both · lifestyle and environment and West Cork had re-awakened happy childhood memories of life in a rural society and landscape.
I arrived with no real plans other than to paint.
I'm lucky to have a good visual memory and work mainly from this.
Colour is probably more important than form in my work because of its emotional impact.
I have some problems with the concept of "inspiration" and find success usually comes with time and patience though its always exciting when a painting just happens.
Often when I look at pictures I did years before they take me by suprise and I wonder how they arrived.
Sometimes frustrating and sometimes magical painting for me is simply what I do.
