about the art
Feehan’s work as an artist is concerned with the human condition. The subjects that appear on his canvas tend to be an eclectic mix of ideas that attempt to examine, with affection and humour, the human condition and all its foibles.
He is interested in the act of painting and the space it provides to articulate inner states, explore subjectivity and expression. The process of painting provides a surface where the pursuit of perfection can be entertained and where the intimate relationship with accident & the ambiguity of existence can be honoured.
