I am delighted to be exhibiting in this group exhibition along with nine other leading landscape artists at the Origin gallery, the exhibition is to be opened tonight (Thurs. March 14th) by Dr. Noelle Campbell Sharp, founder of the Cill Rialaig Artist's retreat in County Kerry. This wonderful retreat enables artists from all over the world to stay almost cost free in the artist's village of cottages right by the sea in Kerry. I have had two residencies each a truly inspirational experience! Some of the paintings that arose from my residencies are in this exhibition.
There is a wine reception 6 - 8pm tonight at the Origin, 37 Fitzwilliam st Upper, Dublin 2 to start the exhibition if anyone is interested to come along to preview this brilliant collection of work by very different artists all with their own interpretations of the wild Kerry land and seascape. I shall be there and would be pleased to see you.
'Each artists responds in their own unique way to the landscape and this special vision is what enables them to create their art. My style of painting is true to nature and the inspiration is from deep in my heart and is in response to my wonder at the beauty of the natural world. Kerry is a very distinctive and different landscape to paint and each time I have been there to paint it has taken a few days just to absorb the colour and beauty before I can actually start painting, then the inspiration just flows! it is a magical place'.
