Roisin O'Farrell At The Hayfield Manor  

                                                                                 Between the Lights Exhibition

                                                      September 18th - October 16th at The Hayfield Manor Hotel, Cork.

Roisin O'Farrell comes from a long line of enterprising and creative Cork women. As a young woman, Roisin's great grandmother, Annie Kiely (nee Horrigan) was a dressmaker in Kinsale town and she employed a number of local women in her business. 
They would work by daylight until dusk would fall, and then there would be a short time before the gas lights would become effective. They would use this time 'between the lights' to take a turn up the road, to chat and refresh themselves before returning to finish the days work. 
Roisin is best known for her paintings of Welly Boots, full of character and colour, and sumptuous paintings of interiors. Her work, described as impactful, beautiful and a little vintage, is influenced by a sense of home, and feature warm, light filled period interiors with the lush impasto palette knife treatment that have made her a favorite. Her work has been deeply influenced by light and much of her interiors paintings are informed by the fall of light from within or without. In this highly anticipated show she turns to the lights of daylight and dusk for inspiration.
