Roisin O'Farrell - Artist

Previous Exhibitions at [Kenny's Lahinch Art Gallery]
- July 2016 - "Cois Fharraige"

Irish artist, Róisín O’Farrell was born to a family of talented artists. Her exposure to art from an early age offered her a visual apprenticeship to both classical and contemporary art.

 

Róisín paints bright, vibrantly colorful paintings in textured, buttery oils with a contemporary finish. Her work is influenced by a sense of home, and feature warm, light filled period interiors, tumbled families of rain boots, vintage cutlery and quirky china teacups.

 

First discovered in early 2009, Róisín work is in high demand in established galleries across Ireland, the UK and Europe.

 

“how I paint is as important to me as what I paint. Certainly light, colour and texture are critical elements.

 

Alternating between pallet knife and brush allows me to create rich textures, use lots of juicy paint and suggest rather than describe. I'm affected by bold jewel colours and treat myself to them as I work, like sweeties from a box.”
