7 February – 19 March 2014 (extended due to popular demand)
From Friday 7 February to Wednesday 19 March Solomon Fine Art is delighted to host a solo exhibition of new paintings & sculpture by Margaret Egan.
Based near Dun Laoghaire in County Dublin, Egan is gifted in both the art of painting and sculpture. Her studio overlooks the sea, so naturally the ocean is a huge inspiration. Her seascapes are atmospheric and moody with dark grey skies and angry seas, perfectly capturing the wild nature of the Irish coast. Other landscape subjects in this show include Inish Mean in Donegal, Caherdaniel in Co. Kerry and the stunning autumnal hues of the Wicklow landscape, brimming with vibrant colour and energy. Also included in this exhibition are her distinct figurative paintings and sculptures in bronze. In contrast to the vivid landscapes, these poetic figures are often more subdued in colour and have an enigmatic air of mystery about them.
“The work in this show continues to explore the conflicts of nature and people, both so very different yet so intertwined, their roots creeping through layers of history. I want to reach down and explore that, with all its pain, beauty and strength.” – Margaret Egan, Jan 2014
