This book is the result of long years of study and meditation by Mahoney in an attempt to translate his poetic, idyllic landscapes, dreamscapes and seascapes into something of greater value, while retaining their romanticism, poetry and visual pleasure. Mahoney has arrived at the peak. The road was long and winding, but the ultimate destination was clear. He has camped on the ‘summit’ to produce ‘icons’ he had dreamt about during fifty years of painting and transformed them into a silent meditation and contemplation whilst enjoying the true beauty of nature.
“This is mysticism at its best”
“Most of Mahoney’s paintings are the direct product of his mystic core, which emit messages from a deeply meditated and private theology”
