In this, Flinn’s third and much anticipated solo show with Solomon, the artist focuses on the cityscape within 5km of her studio in Sandymount, Dublin. These distinctly urban paintings feature studies of building sites and iconic structures around the Dublin docklands and surrounding areas.  Cranes, scaffolding and industrial chimney stacks dominate the skyline and the artist delights in juxtaposing old buildings that have been dwarfed by the new.

 

Bridget’s paintings are distinctive for their semi-abstracted, close-cropped representation. Each piece, while appearing spontaneous, is exquisitely worked with a harmonious balance of both colour and composition. Her background and experience in natural history illustration is evident in the keen observation.  Varying in scale, Bridget’s works are lively and expressive with a skilful sense of depth and perspective.  

 

Bridget Flinn studied Fine Art at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin and later at the prestigious Royal College of Art in London. She has worked as an illustrator and has a particular interest in natural history illustration. Flinn has exhibited widely in Ireland, including the Annual Exhibitions at the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Royal Ulster Academy. Her paintings hang in the collections of the Office of Public Works and Blackrock Hospice as well as featuring in many private collections.
