Ann Dunphy solo in Joan Clancy Gallery
July 8 - 25
Joan Clancy Gallery are proud to present a solo show by Ann Dunphy from July 8th -25th inspired in part by the muddy browns and rich apricots of the Cambodian landscape.
While still a student in Crawford College of Art & Design, Dunphy’s outstanding talent was already recognized and she won many important awards. Now that she has returned from her seven-year overseas sojourn this exhibition of new works is sure to attract the discerning eye of loyal and canny buyers.
"It is" explains Dungarvan born Dunphy "by opening your eyes to other cultures that it allows you to add greater value to your own".
"Water has always been an important factor in my work and viewpoint has always been considered and manipulated to create dynamic compositions.
"Each painting places you into moments of movement and energy, reflection and tension. Colour and light splash and drip across the surface and the water and skies bleed. With some force, the contrast between earthy tones and vivid colour, carry the livestock boats and birds. They have become for me, a necessity to explore. The imagery breathes through.
"You see heavy marks disappear into the horizon and new colours become the path to follow in the composition."
Joan Clancy Gallery is situated in the Co Waterford Gaeltacht near Ring College 10k from Dungarvan and 12k from Ardmore.
