The Sea, The Sky

Orfhlaith Egan

I am an Irish artist dividing my time between Cornamona, Co. Galway, Ireland and Berlin, Germany. Having completed a degree in History of Art at Trinity College Dublin in 1999, I embarked on my Grand Tour around the world for 14 years before moving to Germany to focus on my art full-time. ‘Pale blue clouds, pink stained skies and the soft line where the air meets the land and sea…’ My paintings are inspired by my native west of Ireland and the many other lands traveled since. W.B. Yeats, Patrick Kavanagh, Paul Henry, Sean Scully and Georgia O'Keefe are some of the poets and artists I am influenced by and draw inspiration from. In October this year I will be moving to a larger studio where I can continue to pay tribute to the natural world, paint meditative paintings and explore the freedom and uncertainty of not belonging anywhere. 3 of my works hang in the HSE Corporate Finance Center, Irish Government Buildings, Dublin, Ireland. Visits to my studio are welcome. Please email or call for an appointment. Irish Studio: Cluinbruin, Cornamona, Co. Galway, Ireland. Berlin Studio: Wüs Atelier & Gallery, Kaiserin-Augusta-Allee 47, 10589 Berlin.
