“Ciara Gormeley’s paintings allow her to distil the elements of the landscape which arrest her attention. These are often formal preoccupations, the way certain colours are layered, how line intercepts line, the light, the space. She is also taken with a landscape’s resonance: how the pockets of landscape she stumbles upon contain a kind of history. It is the feeling of age, of weathered atmosphere, which draws her in.” Kate Reeve Edwards Freelance Arts Writer at Cultural Capital Arts.
