‘’..Blue Un-Invited..’’ by Barbara O’Meara

Thursday 14th November – Thursday 9th January 2014

 

‘..Blue Un-Invited..’ is a collection of work by Dublin based artist Barbara O’Meara.

Barbara O’Meara is a professional artist, who in 2012 had her paintings selected for ‘Contemporary Irish Art’, an exhibition of six Irish Artists at New York’s Lockhart Gallery. She has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions in Ireland, U.K. and across Europe.

Barbara is currently exhibiting in Kuala Lumpur with the ‘The Drawing Box’ & with Il Barattolo exhibitions Incontri Europei & Mondadori at CostArena Arts Centre, Bologna, Italy. Alongside her own practice she also works as a Community Artist with various collaborative projects such as ‘Portraits of Pain’ sponsored by Pfizer Healthcare, N.C.A.D’s Public Art Placement Programme with Coolmine Addiction Group exhibiting at I.M.M.A, Northern Ireland’s Re-Generate Project ’09 & currently with families of a registered bereavement support charity.

‘..Blue Un-Invited..’ is an exhibition of paintings which continues the artists’ on-going exploration of our position in and connection to our surroundings and the resonance of humanity in the landscape. Her work aims to capture moments of our existence, the simplicity and complexity of human nature, and the fragility of our lives. Visiting and studying sites of historical, geographical and spiritual interest has always been at the core of the artist’s practice, drawing artistic sustenance and inspiration she interprets an emotional response to these sacred places.

Barbara’s work, which often oscillates between figurative and abstraction incorporating the artist’s expressive style, uses elements of nature as a metaphor to express this fragility of life. Glimpses of other worldliness, wilderness, dissolving landscapes and seascapes, fragmented ruins, figures isolated in the land, her work has been described as dreamlike, portraying a peripheral world, on the edge of time, a fusion of reality, memory and imagination.
