'O'Malley has a rare and remarkable talent. He is certainly one of the most profoundly gifted painters ever to have come from Ireland' Patrick Heron
This volume, first published in 1996, now reaches its third edition. Edited by Brian Lynch, it features more than 300 illustrations, 238 of them in colour, and includes essays by Aidan Dunne, Brian Fallon, the late Patrick Heron, Patrick J. Murphy, Frances Ruane, Vera Ryan and the late James White. These essays along with quotations from conversations between the artist and Brian Lynch offer valuable insights into O'Malley's life, beliefs and views on the artistic process, and celebrate the sheer scale of his achievement.
