"INSIDE AND OUT"

by Roisin O'Farrell

In association with The Gallery Kinsale, we are delighted to showcase a collection of oil paintings by highly sought after Irish Artist Róisín O’Farrell. From October 2019 until January 2020 we will feature a selection of her trademark interior paintings alongside landscape paintings of locations close to the heart and soul of the artist.

THE ARTIST

Irish Artist, Róisín O’Farrell was born to a family of talented artists. Her exposure to art from an early age offered her a visual apprenticeship to both classical and contemporary art. The daily painting movement was an early influence for Róisín; it’s commitment to da ily practice fitting well with her disciplined approach and commitment to improving her craft.

Róisín’s work to date, although diverse in subject, is unified in its bold approach to colour and application of paint. Her work is instantly recognisable for it’s fresh bright colour and vibrant energy.

THE ART

 

In this exhibition Róisín presents a collection of paintings that feature spaces that represent home; both inside and out, focusing on the effect that the scenes described have on the viewer.

This show features interior paintings in rich textured oil for which Róisín is widely known as well as a small selection of landscape paintings, also in oil, which feature scenes from West Cork and Wicklow. Her work offers sumptuously vivid colour as well as satisfyingly layered and buttery texture.

With bold strokes of the palette knife and more delicate application with the brush, Roisin’s work is more impressionist than literal. Whether internal or external, her work follows the light and feeling of a space and focuses on how the finished painting effects the viewer.

THE MONTENOTTE HOTEL

 

General Manager of The Montenotte Hotel Brian Bowler said,

“Róisín’s work is instantly recognisable for its fresh bright colour and vibrant energy. We are proud to support local Irish artists whilst also bringing unique and interesting works of art to the hotel for our guests and visitors to appreciate.

Róisín O’Farrell is the most high profile artist we have worked with to date, and her paintings add enormously to the hotel’s own art collection and the vibrancy of The Montenotte.”

HISTORY BEGINS WITH A MERCHANT PRINCE

Lee View House

 

In 2017 the management team of the Montenotte hotel decided to embark on uncovering the history of our unique hotel. Having limited knowledge on its previous residence we commissioned a local historian, Margaret Lantry, recommended by UCC for her knowledge of Cork’s Merchant princes. The research project took over 12 months but the history uncovered and the stories told were remarkable.

The research documents, the background history, to the houses and the hotels on the site preliminary research was conducted involving the examination of the land records including ordinance survey, name books and letters, the tithe allotment books and valuation office records. The 1901 and 1911 censuses and Cork city street directories were also examined as were street directories since 1867. Other sources used where newspapers for mentions of the Lee view hotel and country club hotel in order to find out more about their history.
