The Salt Line
17 / 03 / 2024 - 14 / 04 / 2024
Gillian Murphy is an Irish artist. She divides her time working between her studios in Valentia, County Kerry in the South West of Ireland, and Dublin.
She describes her work as being
"...highly influenced by my love of our coast, the play of ever changing light and the drama in the surrounding landscape. My paintings are intuitive and atmospheric and range from loose ephemeral landscapes to richly textured abstract and semi abstract compositions. Whether figurative or abstract, they are often a collage of remembered places and emotions."
'The title of this exhibition 'The Salt Line' refers to the invisible boundary where fresh river water meets the saltwater before reaching the open sea.
Murphy is represented in Ireland at a number of galleries including Kilbaha Gallery, Co. Clare, The Russell Gallery, New Quay, Co. Clare and The Whitethorn Gallery, Clifden Co. Galway and Cill Rialaig Arts Centre, Co. Kerry.
