Publications include "Kenneth Webb" (1974) Shenval Press, London, and "Webb, a Profile" by Thomas Kenny (1990). An inspiring teacher, many of his past pupils are members of professional bodies, RHA, RUA, etc.. He now spends less time teaching and is a visiting Tutor at the Irish School of Landscape Painting.
John O'Donohue has written of this artist "Kenneth Webb's work is a homage to the secret life of colour. Though his paintings are intense icons, you never have the feeling that form or content are forced or contrived. He has managed to penetrate to some deeper level from which the painting is able to assert the dream of its own shaping. He says paintings have always come to him. His work does have that tone of lyrical necessity: they had to come. In our post-modern era, where so much of life is reduced and commercialised through visual and aggressive image, it is healing for the eye and refreshing for the heart to encounter these paintings. If beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, then Kenneth Webb is a graced and gracious beholder".
