LAND, SEA, and Memory is the title of a new series of paintings from the Mayo born, Galway based, artist Pam Dolan, which is currently running in the Church Gallery at Ballinasloe Library.
The exhibition features the rugged shoreline of the west of Ireland, as well as turbulent seas and their energy and movement. Pam's work is inspired by landscape, both realistic and remembered landscape. "I try to capture the essence of a place and relay to the viewer using a visual language," she says.
She works in oil and acrylic. "I love both mediums and appreciate each for their unique characteristics and qualities," she says. "My work is evolving all the time, from traditional landscape to scenes of uncharacteristic and sometimes brave colour and pattern."
Pam’s work has not only been bought locally and throughout Ireland, it is sought in the USA, Canada, and Australia. Land, Sea, and Memory runs until Friday April 26.
