Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust Presents “Gardenland “ a solo exhibition by artist Fiona Cawley which opened on November 2nd in the Arts Corridor of University Hospital Galway, the show will be on display until November 29th 2018. Cawley is an artist living in Kinvara, Co. Galway. She graduated with a BA Art and Design Degree from the Centre for Creative Arts and Media, GMIT in 2015 and was awarded a GMIT Academic Achievement Award. As an emerging artist, her work has been selected for exhibitions such as Cairde Visual, Hambly and Hambly House Gallery group show, an invited artist to King House during the Boyle Arts Festival in 2017 and 2018 and she was shortlisted for the Royal Academy of Art’s summer show 2018. Upcoming shows in 2019/20 include a selected group show in the Custom House Gallery, Westport and a Solo Show in the Ballina Arts Centre.

As an expressive, spontaneous painter of narrative and contemporary landscape pieces she allows the paint to dictate the beginning of each work, eventually the abstract evolves into a more representational painting, she then uses her imagination when it comes to the subject matter. In this solo exhibition ‘Gardenland’, the artist considers the connection between her controlled garden space and that of the bordering wild natural landscape. This body of work is an emotional response to the surrounding landscape and her love of nature and the environment.

Margaret Flannery, Arts Director, ‘we are delighted to display ‘Gardenland’ by Fiona Cawley on the arts corridor of University Hospital Galway. Already the reaction from patients, staff and the public has been overwhelmingly positive. Her work is thought-provoking and interesting and lends itself to the space beautifully’.
