    John Doherty, 'The Fruit & Veg Van', 2011,

    The photo-realist painter John Doherty has a show of New Paintings at Taylor Galleries on Kildare St. in Dublin until May 21.   He returns with new works on canvas and smaller works on card to his most familiar subjects – forlorn shop fronts, rusting petrol pumps, lighthouses and colourful boats abandoned in shipyards. Works on card are priced at 3,500 and works on canvas start at 6,500.  It is his first solo show at Taylor since 2007.
    Born in Kilkenny in 1949 John Doherty studied architecture at Bolton St. in Dublin before moving to Sydney, where he pursued a career as a visual artist. His paintings feature in public collections at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; the Institute of Modern Art, Chicago; the Irish National Stud, Kildare; and Artbank in Sydney.  (Click on any image to enlarge)
