Blood and concrete

These are ‘Blood and Concrete ‘ 1 & 2

Each piece 100 x 80cm on canvas plus frame.

They were exhibited last month at Green Fuse Gallery in Westport, County Mayo.

I have submitted them to ‘Cairde Visual’ at the Model, in Sligo for their annual juried Summer show as part of Cairde Festival. I should hear soon if they have been selected. Fingers crossed!

These pieces developed out of my response to images of destruction in Aleppo, Syria. However, I don’t see them as sad paintings, but abstract images in their own right. It’s up to the viewer to make their own interpretation. I would be interested to hear from anyone if they have a particular reaction. Thanks

journey inward

These are the 4 stages of my most recent largish canvas
It is on coarse unstretched (and creased badly from being in my suitcase) jute canvas about 4′ x 3′

This was actually the second session, I forgot to take a photo of when it was all red and yellow, with a bit of turquoise,  stapled to the floor on Saturday morning

Sunday, more sombre with shapes consolidating

Early Monday morning – loads of alizarin crimson overlaid on the lower half and a mess in the middle and a scatty unresolved indecisive upper third

small, textured works on paper or multi media board in oil and wax
sizes between 16 x 12cm and 25 x 16cm
all made in November at Ballinglen Arts Foundation, County Mayo
inspired by a trip to the neolithic field walls at Ceide Fields on the North Mayo Coast

I would love to mount these together and show in a small museum, library or somewhere interested in these 5 thousand year old artifacts from a community who lived and farmed in a time before the wheel and before the metal plough

If anyone is interested, from anywhere in the world, please contact me  liz-doyle@live.com

These two paaintings, ‘underneath’ and’sea bed’ have been selected to be exhibited at Workshop, a new gallery space in Raval, Barcelona. I have just booked my flights to go over for the opening night.

Woa, you might say, isnt that a bit extreme to go so far just because two paintings have been selected for a group show?

Well the other exciting news is that while I am there I am going to be interviewed and therefore might appear in a new documentary film called Brand Irish being made by a film company based in Barcelona called PadiProductions

PadiProductions have won awards for their previous productions including Zero Tolerance
