KILKENNY -- A huge abstract work by Francis Tansey hangs over half the atrium in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel and attracts visitors to Kilkenny just to see this work. Tansey's work looks much more vivid than it appears on a computer perhaps because a computer screen simply does not have the frequency range to represent the bright hues and kaleidscopic filters in the paintings. Tansey brings an artist's vision to the boxes and arrows used by many technicians when representing bands of activity across space. While much of Tansey's work create an ambience that relaxes me, the magic he makes with primary colours creates a sense of activity, as though the objects in his paintings were moving and spinning as he put them to canvas.
