‘A room of one’s own’

Virgina Wolfe remarked that in order for a woman to write she must have two things “a room of one’s own and a secure living”.

Róisín has been exploring this theme in both her life and her work over the last two years. Her current exhibition is an expression of how she has navigated these two basic needs.

The paintings reflect the home in which she lives with her children and the warmth, fun and imperfect character that ‘home’ suggests. The quietness, light and sense of calm in her paintings reflect the space that Róisín has carved out of her life, both figuratively and practically, for her work.

Her style is painterly. She uses the palette knife and lots of buttery paint to describe scenes of eccentric chairs and colourful rooms. Her work is known for it’s use of strong clear colour and a sense of light.

Róisín’s success has become the thing that in itself sustains her ability to create. Her work is in high demand and is exhibited widely in established galleries in the UK and Ireland.

This solo exhibition at The Doorway Gallery will comprise 16 new paintings and opens, 6pm on Thursday September 20th, the evening before Culture Night, and will run until October 17th. Róisín will also be giving a painting demonstration at the gallery on Culture Night Sept 21st.

“Róisín O’Farrell’s work is beautiful, detailed, powerful and decidedly female” Barbara Muir
