‘Prayers from the Garden’ - an art exhibition by Miriam D Robinson is on display in the Tipp Excel from September 11th to October 12th.
Everything is in flow - even when boundaries of understanding and experience seem fixed, there is always change and new space emerging. This interconnection of the physical and metaphysical is explored visually as a sensual topography of layered paint, expressive colour and shifting boundaries allow form and space to co-exist in openness. Together these elements aim to lead to an experience rather than a recognition event.
Miriam D Robinson has exhibited her art extensively both in solo and group exhibitions and her work is held in many national and private collections. She works now both as an art maker and as a community artist in the arts & health sector. Her art is influenced by her experience of Nature, Celtic and Byzantine Iconography, Early Renaissance Painting, Islamic Manuscripts and Aboriginal ground painting. This exhibition of large and small acrylic works on canvas and paper aims to offer a unique meditative experience. For more information or to book a group visit contact: 062 80520. All admissions are free.
