Belonging at Jennings Gallery, College of Medicine and Health, UCC.

Date posted: 20 February 2015

Belonging is an exhibition of paintings by Thérèse Healy-Kelly featuring depictions caught in the polarities of country and coast on view at Jennings Gallery, College of Medicine and Health, ativan, UCC. From the Galway trawlers and the bustling street scene back to the dog lying lazily at the end of the winding stairs all rendered in oil on canvas, Healy-Kelly’s work is full of expression and movement. It is real, yet abstract. She is an atmospheric painter and her work is reflective and autobiographical. Thérèse takes inspiration from artists like Una Sealy, Jenny Saville and the portrait work of Ewan Uglow, as well as the still lifes and limited palettes of Morandi and Brian Ballard. Read More
