‘A Life in Paint’: Patrick Reel Retrospective Exhibition

  • Event Venue: Dublin Castle

‘A Life in Paint’ encompasses the creative journey of Patrick Reel (b.1935). While covering all of this journey, many of the paintings included in this exhibition are very recent works, reflecting Reel’s ongoing energy and enthusiasm for a painting practice which spans over sixty years. Several of these paintings are arguably some of the finest he has ever produced.

The subject matter of his works ranges from portraits to landscape studies, semi-abstract/abstract compositions, and black and white sketches, all in evidence in this exhibition. As long ago as 1968, Reel exhibited as part of the Irish Exhibition of Living Art, alongside Louis le Brocquy, Mainie Jellett and others. A solo exhibition of his abstract work followed in 1973 in the prestigious Project Arts Centre.
