Lynn Foster Fitzgerald and Émer O Laoghaire : Seeing comes before words

Sun 10 Sept – Fri 6 Oct
Court House Arts

Lynne Foster Fitzgerald

Lynne Foster Fitzgerald lives and works in Wicklow. Trained at IADTL and DIT (2006), her solo shows have addressed the possibility of psychological transformation through the act of painting.

In this collaboration Lynne’s love of and deep connection with materials is expressed through the recycling of studio detritus and found objects.

Émer O Laoghaire

Born in Dublin and living in Co. Wicklow for almost 20 years, Émer O Laoghaire started painting in 2014 using found materials such as discarded sails and household paints.

Émer has had no formal training apart from a workshop in NCAD on colour mixing. Now working on canvas and linen grounds and using acrylics and powdered pigments, Émer’s artwork reflects her interest in the dynamics of colour, the ongoing tension between light and dark, and the gradations of tone between the two.
