From the Land of Hills and Castles - an exhibition of paintings by Alison Barry will open on Friday 7th February @ 7pm. All are welcome.
I am a mainly self-taught artist from Co. Limerick. Having a background in Interior Design has influenced my love of capturing mood and creating atmosphere in a painting. I paint and draw in most mediums but I am currently using soft pastels, charcoal and oils. I love to experiment with all media. My work is emotive depending on mood. I take most of my inspiration from the beautiful landscape and nature of Ireland. I’m very much influenced by the ever changing Irish weather. I'm also very much inspired by music, lyrics and poetry. Sometimes I drift between what’s real and my imaginary world, so much of my work is illustrative and has a fantasy element to it. I love to play with colour and bringing my imagination to the page. I am an active member of ArtLimerick and take part in group exhibitions and markets throughout the year.
