On My Green Way I Wend An exhibition of paintings by Maria O’Brien
Maria O’Brien’s work explores landscape painting inspired by photography from social media. As overall winner of the Dunamaise Open Exhibition 2013 Maria was awarded a month-long residency in Laois Arthouse, where she is still a studio artist.
The Laois Arthouse Gallery, Stradbally, Co. Laois
7th May to 3rd June 2016
Her new body of work, created during her residency in The Laois Arthouse, reveals a renewed exploration into landscape for the artist. By working directly from photographs, found mostly on social media, the artist offers us glimpses into other people’s worlds. The artist creates small-scale paintings in oil on primed paper
Maria O’Brien’s practice involves painting and drawing. She has a Masters in Fine Art and a First Class Honours Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art Painting from the National College of Art and Design and a Higher Diploma in Art Education from Limerick School of Art and Design. She teaches art in the Midlands Prison Education Centre in Portlaoise.
The title of the exhibition is taken from a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson, ‘The Canoe Speaks’, from his collection of poems, Underwoods, 1913
