John Philip Kearney - Artist - Contemporary abstract art
Corporate Commissions 
 
 
As a Architect I have a well developed sense of scale & space.
I use these senses to paint large scale works for the Corporate world. 
 
My Corporate work typically consist of large scale abstract works hanging in Reception areas, Boardrooms & Office suites of CEO's.

Case Study
 
Michael Smurfit MBA '03
 
The painting was commissioned by the Smurfit MBA Class of 2003 who wished to commemorate their academic year with a work of Art.
 
 
I entered into a dialogue with the students who wished to relate to me stories or insights from their time spent on the MBA programme.
 
 
The resultant piece is thus informed by & inspired from this process as well as my own MBA experiences from 2000.
 
 
The piece is principally inspired by the new MBA Lecture theatres & by the random chaotic nature of the student notice boards outside the lecture hall.
 
 
The contrast between these two spaces & their associated meanings generated the final composition.
 
 
The completed canvas measures
4 x 3 ft , sits on an array of blue acrylic colours inspired by the fabric coverings of the lecture theatre chairs.
 
 
I named the piece "The Altar"
as a title worthy of the personal, financial & emotional  sarifices MBA students make in order to complete their studies in anticipation of a more fulfilling future life.
 
 
I greatly enjoyed undertaking this commission & wish to thank the Class of 2003 & faculty for their vision & co-operation.
