THE ARTIST

Peter Dee grew up on a farm in Co. Kerry and his natural talent, obvious from his early sketches and paintings has developed over the years to the recognised and highly regarded artist he is today. His collection 'There is Still Life' was produced during the period of pandemic related restrictions allowing Peter the time and space to perfect the essence of the blue and white enamel jugs along with the strong reds and oranges of the fruit captured in stunning detail, bringing our focus from the busyness of the everyday world to these strong distilled images and interplay of light and colour.

Peter is showing at The Montenotte Hotel until January 2022 in association with The Gallery Kinsale.

THE ART

The collection was inspired by the still life tradition of the past, but brings a contemporary look and feel to each painting, faithfully capturing the interplay of light, shadow and reflection between the still life subjects.

This light transforms simple objects in Peter’s still life compositions into visually exciting images full of vibrant colour combinations.

THE ART CONTINUED...

Many people speak to how Peter's work makes them feel calm, with a pared back approach taken to the selection, arrangement and placing of the enamel and ceramic pieces, the fruit that rests in or beside them and the choice of colour pallet.

Peter's work is highly collectable and we are thrilled he has chosen The Montenotte for his first ever solo exhibition as part of our Artist in Residence programme in association with The Gallery Kinsale. 

Exhibition is also available to view online

LET THE GOOD TIMES BE-GIN

With lockdowns a thing of the past (here’s hoping), it is time to let the good times be-gin. Whilst we were closed during the lockdown at the start of the year, our amazing Food & Beverage team worked tirelessly behind the scenes with Blackwater Distillery to create our very own Montenotte Gin inspired by our Victorian gardens.

Having our own gin was an idea our team has spoken about for a long time, but with the reopening of the hotel on the horizon as well as opening of our new stylish rooftop bar, The Glasshouse in August, it was possible to plan again and the Montenotte Gin was born…
