Sorca O’Farrell is a landscape artist from Howth, Co. Dublin. She attended D.L.A.D.T. and N.C.A.D., receiving an honours degree in Fine Art, and continuing to complete a H.Dip with distinction. Recent awards include the Drawing Prize at the Royal Ulster Academy exhibition 2017, and the Hamilton Gallery award at Cairde Visual 2016. In her work she revisits the same setting again and again. Not just for its stark beauty, not just for the peace and peaceful sounds, not just for its layers of light, dark and texture, there is something else here too. “Memories play a role in how all places make us feel, but I am not expressing mere memories through my art any more than I am simply recreating a landscape. I am interested in going further”.
