Marie Foley: INSEEING

1st October - 27th November 2022
Limerick City Gallery of Art

 

1st October 27th November 2022

 

Marie Foley is one of the outstanding artists of her generation.  Foley studied Fine Art in The Crawford College of Art, Cork, Goldsmiths College London, Cardiff Art College and was awarded an MA in 1987. Her sculptures are composed of elements which are carved in yew, bog oak, ash, sycamore, beech, holly - elements modelled in porcelain and of additional hand-worked or salvaged elements in metal, glass or stone.

 

Her artistic practice is inspired by a profound interest in nature. Her language is one of symbolic form - form which becomes a vehicle for the spiritual in nature.  The majority of the work in this exhibition has not been previously exhibited apart from some pieces that were included in the Venice Biennale, curated by O' Donnell Tuomey in 2012. 

 

This will be Foley's first exhibition in LCGA since the late 1990s and offers a significant opportunity to re-introduce this important artist to audiences in the Mid-West and beyond.

 

Foley's work has been exhibited in Ireland, UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Holland, Hungary, Poland, Finland, Canada, USA and Japan. She was the first Irish Artist to have a solo Exhibition in the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
