Born in 1953 Bernard Irwin studied in the Netherlands. On his return to the UK in 1981 he worked in Bristol, painting and making sculpture and ceramics until moving to Cornwall in 1996 where he now paints.
Bernard Irwin is an abstract painter, images that arise out of his experience; things seen, heard and felt. Influences and inspiration are as varied as Japanese wood block prints, electronic and piano music, poetry and novels, the glorious Cornish garden that surrounds his . studio. Light, colour, sound. Silence, the silence of the studio, the silence of painting.
Bernard has exhibited his work in various locations in the UK since 1982.
