An exhibition of paintings by artist Michelle Boyle

‘Outside the Urban’ reflects on the artist’s own sense of person and place,  a constant theme of Boyle’s artistic output.

Boyle grew up a mixed race, adopted child between Ballymun and Finglas in the 1970’s

‘I felt the fraught internal emotions of my childhood were outwardly evident in the new rural suburbia around me – neither seemed sure of their identity’

Through the difficult process of finding her birth parents and her origins, Boyle has come of age as an artist. The resolution of this internal conflict is evident in the honest and tender paintings of her childhood and in her new work inspired by her Indian birth inheritance.
