Gary Shaw – Bio
Although born in England, Shaw studied for his first degree in fine art at the University of South Australia, where he had several group and solo shows before he moved to Belfast, Northern Ireland. He attained his Masters in Fine Art at the University of Ulster and is considered one of our finest abstract artists.
His work has been shown as far afield as America (with a Residency in New York), Australia, Canada (Banff Residency), China, Indonesia, Germany and Spain, as well as shows throughout the British Isles.
The endless variety of patterns and colours has always appealed to Gary, as witnessed by his blocks of solid colour, his painting of jockey’s silks, the maritime flags and the geometrical shapes used to communicate with the viewer. Gary has recently been developing a new body of work drawing the many characters he sees from his studio and on his travels.
Frances Ryan – Bio

She has exhibited at the Royal Academy London and the RHA Dublin and has had solo exhibitions in Belfast (Mullan Gallery), Dublin (Solomon Fine Art) and Cork (Catherine Hammond Gallery).
