Doyle’s work possesses a naive bravery, and works mostly with acrylic on canvas. Pastel tones and patterns set the backdrop for the majority of Doyle’s compositions. Overset with recurring motifs of women, horses and flowers, Doyle reinvents the still life with a charming intimacy. Having described his approach as ‘casual’, Doyle's work can be recognised by his immediate, definitive way of mark making.
The artist honed his skills painting graffiti rather than going to art school. This is evident in his work, his courageous and expressive style feels emancipated, and is a refreshing contrast from the standard art school graduate. Having displayed works in group shows in London, and his debut showing in Dublin’s Fumbally Exchange, the show promises to be a brilliant insight in to the progression of a young, prolific, Irish painter.
