Maura Fahy - ‘Timescape’ Exhibition

Entitled ‘Timescape’, the inspiration her new work stems from her childhood fascination with the Dandelion flower; “its shape, softness and its magical ability to disappear in a second.”

aled, “The Dandelion flower created many playful moments for me as a child; using it as a clock to tell the time and watching it drift away in the wind. When blowing the ‘clocks’ and spreading their life for miles around, I felt that I was actively creating nature.”


“As an artist, in order to create pieces of work that are true to my emotions, I must be in a free flowing space, a space that is still mysterious and indefinable to me. The experience of being in these moments has always been inspirational for me in my work. The use of the dandelion has always featured in my paintings as a final layer, but occasionally I’ve dedicated paintings to the theme of 'dandelions'”, she added.

Recently, Maura has experimented with the application of various techniques to enhance her paintings. “In the recent past, I’ve spent time experimenting which, I hope, will enhance the visual impact of my work, in order to express a sense of mystery. This, I feel, makes the viewer more curious and invites them to look deeper into the painting. Colour has always been a major part of my work. In this series, I plan to develop my use of colour further to give more vibrancy to my pieces. This will, in turn, give more energy and movement to the work and hopefully provoke an emotional response from the viewer.”

The exhibition will be officially launched at 6:30pm on Friday April 17th in Áras an Chontae, Tullamore, by renowned author Geraldine O’Neill. All are welcome to attend.
