The confident and wonderfully abstract nature of Paul McMahons work is truly mesmerising. Rather like the flames of an open fire, you find you can’t take your eyes away – and the longer you look, the more and more elements that appear. Ultimately, you realise that this piece of art becomes the work that just keeps on giving.

Entitled ‘Searching’- this piece of art – oil on canvas – is of a mythical place, a feeling or space, deep in the woods, searching for some meaning; turning to nature and finding that the ‘tree of life’ was rather a more precarious climb than the artist ever thought. The colors and patterns used, combine together to provide an overall atmosphere; a feeling perhaps. The faces that appear as you stare at this painting, bring to mind various stages in our own life – and that of those around us – and maybe even the lives of those gone past.

 Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
