Approaching the Landscape in The Irish Times

Niall de Buitléar’s small paintings, built from intricate concentric patterns, are geometric but also suggestive of organic processes. They equate to the world outside: complex and orderly but also contingent and unpredictable. Their handmade precision makes them visually fascinating. You could quite happily live with any one of them and never tire of it.

From Aidan Dunne’s review of Approaching the Landscape at Rua Red in the Irish Times
