My art work based on the poem of Eva Gore Booth, The Dreamer, Acrylic on Canvas, 30cm x 30cm. Available online via Hamilton Gallery, Sligo.
On external exhibit at the MoLI (Museum of Literature Ireland), Dublin till mid March. This is an invited artists exhibition of 93 women artists to respond to the life and work of Eva Gore Booth. The exhibition will be touring abroad to the Irish embassies around Europe some time late March.
I have a small piece on my website about how the poem spoke to me on a personal level and also on my art process of how the painting came about further down my homepage
I unintentionally painted this entire painting upside down. I came to a point were I didn’t want to go any further with it. It was just ‘done’, in my mind but there was something really bothering me about where it came to. I turned it upside down, and it seemed to work immediately. How funny..
From a recent hike, here are the things that catch my interest. The rings of the tree showing so many years and the little ‘elephant eye’ in the center as if it were in a moment of nostalgia.. This just came to mind for a brief moment.
