'Changing Landscapes' by Deirdre Rodgers
'Being surrounded by the landscape in Kenmare where I lived for almost twenty years, it is not surprising that it influenced my work. Firstly the paintings were semi abstract landscapes but over the years have developed into more realistic paintings. The sky was originally a big part of the landscapes but as I continued to paint this changed.
Mostly l work in oil on canvas layering thin layers of paint one over the other slowly giving the work an almost watercolour appearance but recently I have become more diverse and use oils, watercolours, chalk pastels and acrylics. Also while stay ing with nature I have started painting flowers and am aiming at working in a looser more gentle style.'
This exhibition will run until December 2018. Free Admission. All Welcome.
