Here is another of the pieces I'm working on for the Dalkey exhibition which opens on April 13th. I'm starting to get a really nice feeling from this painting, so I need to be careful not to lose it as I bring it to completion!
The theme of the exhibition centers on that place where the shore and the coast meet.
My paintings deal with the landscapes that run to the coast's edge and the buildings that have become part of those landscapes. Grainne's ceramic work (above) takes it's inspiration directly from the sea and the shorelines that meet the coast. The meeting of the shore and coast is the point where our work overlaps, where the colours and textures of Grainne's beautiful ceramic fish and fired vessels blend into the rich oils and primary colours of my paintings.
