The inspiration behind the painting

My ‘Mayim’ exhibition was a virtual exhibition that consisted of a live stream, so while I sat in formal attire in front of my laptop talking my audience through the various paintings.

‘Mayim’ the Hebrew name for water. 

Lockdown and coronavirus meant that even the artists had to adapt!

Themes of the familiar and familial can be traced back as far as her degree show in 2003 when her installation “Daddy’s bread” used 795 empty bread bags (of her father’s favourite loaf) to represent each week from when her Father passed until the opening of her final exhibition.

The paintings and the exhibition were inspired by my love of water. Water and waves at the beach, water in the lakes and waterfalls in the North and South of Ireland. I trust that you enjoy the brush or palette marks of each scene.  Not only do I love drawing them, as a result, I think they are worth placing importance on.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations.

Mayim prices starting from £159
