‘Snapshots of Celbridge’ is part of the Snapshots series which was shown for the first time at Art Source 2019 in the RDS in Dublin. The idea for the Snapshots series has developed from my interest in the built environment and the rich tapestry of history which is embedded within each and every building, street and city.
I paint using clean lines and strong colours. These bold blocks of colour suit the subject of largely urban environments, taking ‘snapshots’ of views which are the familiar evocative pieces that make up the jigsaw of the world we inhabit.
This piece features snapshots of the spectacular Castletown Estate in Celbridge, Co. Kildare. The four panels in this piece show the beautiful tiled entrance hall, the Wonderful Barn (a barn commissioned by Katherine Conolly to provide famine relief in 1742), the Palladian columns at the front of the Stable Wing and the façade of the House itself.
