T H R I V E, an exhibition by the abstract artist Tory Irvine, whose work focusses on emotional health, will open next week in the Arts Corridor at University Hospital Galway.
Originally from Belfast, and now living in Galway with her husband and two small children, her paintings are vibrant, expressive, and colourful. She works with acrylics on paper, and her interests in fashion and interior and contemporary design filter into her work.
"My work is intrinsically linked to my own self-care and wellbeing," says Irvine. "The result is a body of work that, while portraying a unique perspective, is relatable and relevant to modern life. My hope is my original paintings have a positive and uplifting effect on the onlooker. Art has the power to encourage reflection and promote emotional health which is a critical component of thriving communities."
T H R I V E opens on Thursday June 7 at 6pm and runs until Sunday July 1.
