Presence II is the title of this mixed media on birch panel by the Irish mid-career artist Bridget Flannery. It is from her solo show now on at the Berkeley Gallery, Thomastown, Co Kilkenny as part of Killkenny Arts Week 2012. These powerful paintings have emerged from the artist’s engagement with an abstract visual language of shape, texture and colour that reflects the natural world of sea, land and sky.
Bridget Flannery graduated from the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork in 1981. Since then she has had solo shows in Ireland and Europe, including the RHA Dublin and, most recently, the Fenderesky Gallery, Belfast.
