Exhibition News "SIORAIOCHT" with Dympna Heanue and Meadhbh Ní Eidhin

August 28, 2018

The Connemara landscape has long been the inspiration for Dympna Heanue’s paintings as it has been for countless poets, writers and artists before her. Dympna’s work has always been influenced by Connemara and its surroundings – bogs, lakes, sea and sky, all the changing colours and tones that make up the wonderful scenery that envelope the senses. Her current work practice includes an interpretation of the scenic bogs of Connemara, using a variety of media including materials such as Connemara bog itself (paint mixed with turf mould), and adding found objects and materials to explore, creating different textures that suggest the ruggedness and earthy qualities of the ever-changing local peatland.

Meadhbh Ní Eidhin is an artist and musician from Spiddal, Co. Galway. Her paintings are renowned for their dynamic exploration of colour and texture. Born into a very musical family, Meadhbh’s paintings created with acrylic and oil on canvas vividly and daringly illustrate her passion for music and indeed, other types of subject matter. ‘I attempt to imagine or define this conflicting coalescing world to express a modern sensibility, analysing the ephemerality of humanity’s creations in the face of nature and time’.
