Artist Mairead de Blaca embarks on a solo exhibition at Gallery 27 in June. This exhibition will focus on the artists engagement with nature in her native Ireland and especially her intense interest in the botanical world.
De Blaca's abstract style uses colour and texture to marry together the emotional with the physical. Her work is of a very personal nature and she works instinctively, blending her feelings at the time with natural forms from nature and landscapes. As a result her work is not usually an interpretation of one place in time, instead a representation of several places and drawn together with a common emotional thread. Her titles will sometimes suggest, but the viewer will interpret for themselves, through their connection with her works.
Mairead was born in Cork and graduated from University College Cork with a primary degree in Archaeology and History. Over the past 20 years she has worked and lived in the U. S., The Middle East and Ireland and travelled extensively in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Exhibitions have included the Mexican Embassy in Dublin and October will see her exhibit at the United Arts Club, Dublin.
