The Origin Gallery
Renowned artist Margo Banks returns to Origin Gallery.
Margo ‘imagines’ the bear sitting majestically in and around her mother’s field in Teeromoyle resting in the shadow of the Teeromoyle Mountain, (Sliabh Thír Ó mBaoil) in South West Kerry. Her mother’s house is long gone but the field where the house was remains unchanged and ‘I have painted this field many times’… says Margo. Now inhabited by mostly hares her drawings representing the many charming antics of the wild and playful animals are so bountiful as to merit THE HARE ROOM – a room of its own at the forthcoming Origin exhibition.
The artist takes her inspiration from the words of poet William Cowper’s ‘Epitaph on a Hare’. Added to these extraordinary studies from the artist are striking paintings of gannets, jackdaws and foxes.
