John Devane's paintings are part of an ongoing series which explore the practice and 'craft' of painting in the digital age. Essentially, Devane is interested in the depiction of the human form and he deliberately utilises pre-modernist techniques and associated naturalistic conventions in order to construct images which owe something of their allegiance to the art of previous centuries, whilst at the same time referring to the ubiquitous nature of the photographic image.

John has contributed to exhibitions and conferences for a number of years and has been returned in the Coventry University REF 2014 submission.
