Description

An exhibition by one of Ireland’s most renowned painters.

Carol Graham is a well-established and critically acclaimed artist whose work is held in many important collections. This includes the permanent collections of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Ulster Museum.

Her work is held in private collections, public institutions, businesses and galleries across the UK, Ireland, USA, South Africa and Australia.

Stemming from her work with art therapy groups, this new development in Carol’s work derives from collages using photocopied fragments that are then ‘filled in’ using acrylic, oil, and other mixed media. Over time, the space between the fragmented photographed assumed a greater importance and became the focal point of these exciting new works.

In the early 1990s Carol experienced a period of depression, which she sought to explore and understand through her work. Her images changed, encompassing new subject matter of Irish mountain landscapes, which developed into cathartic and powerful abstract images: metaphorical explorations of emotional and spiritual experiences.

Carol’s acclaimed exhibition Into the Darkness, in Dublin and Belfast, was the culmination of this difficult and ultimately redemptive process. Carol’s learning from this period informs all her subsequent work; she has a keen interest in art therapy.

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland commissioned and purchased her work, as did the Ulster Museum in Belfast. Regular commissions (including multiple portraits) followed and she continues to explore and extend her work.

Carol served as President of the Royal Ulster Academy of Arts (RUA) from 2003-2006.

All artworks are available to buy, and can be delivered free of charge.

You can also buy art from this exhibition through the Own Art scheme which gives you an interest-free loan over 10 months (and you still get to take the art home immediately the exhibition ends).

This event is online only until Covid restrictions permit gallery visits. For more information visit: artisann.org
