The Culture Trip - Local Favourite

 

Galway 2020  

  

 

 
Furlong, Martina PDF Print E-mail
Martina Furlong was born in Co.Wexford, Ireland in 1974, moved to London in 1999 and returned to live in Ireland in April 2015. She received a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Painting from Limerick School of Art and Design in 1996.
 
She has had solo and group exhibitions in America, London and Ireland and her work is in private collections across the world.

STATEMENT 
I paint colourful, textured landscapes and abstracts in oils and acrylics. My paintings are inspired by the beauty, ruggedness and magical quality of the Irish landscape as well as many other intriguing things I encounter every day. 
In my work I like to mix reality with memories and imagination and paint my own interpretation of it. I exaggerate colour, apply layer upon layer of paint, then work back into the surface with various tools as well as pallet knives and brushes to create sensuous works of art with a wonderful tactile quality. 
 
EDUCATION
Limerick School of Art and Design, a degree in fine art painting, 1996
