Fergal Flanagan’s paintings consist mainly of rural scenes with the emphasis on land, sea and sky, with some local scenes, painted at different times of the year to compliment the works. Mostly painted ‘en plein air’ and completed back in his studio, they capture the beauty of the countryside using a bold colourful palette. His inspiration comes from being outdoors, immersed in the scene he is painting and the joy of capturing the light as it changes throughout the day.
Nóirín Dodd’s paintings are a contrasting variety of rural and urban scenes. Her urban scenes reflect the changes taking place in her locality and beyond, with an emphasis on transport and development, while her landscapes reflect woodlands, coastal scenes and the natural environment.
Both artist’s paintings are in oils.
