Geraldine FolanGeraldine is a native Galwegian, hailing from Bearna, on the shores of Galway Bay. Geraldine's paintings are a response to the distinctive climate of the West of Ireland. She is exploring, both in large canvasses and smaller ones, the rapidly shifting weather patterns and changing light effects.
"Watching a stormy sea fills me with excitement, fear and most of all with respect. I have seen locally what the sea can do and its effects on the landscape after a storm and how it makes childsplay of our attempts to harness or control it."
The emphasis in her paintings is on the turbulence in both the sea and sky and the expanses of open space and distant horizons.
