Colleen Deery

A painting, to me, is a window onto another plane; a suggestion of an infinite number of stories. I am currently painting landscapes of various places I have visited in Ireland. I work in my studio from photographs I have taken during my travels there. I have a strong spiritual connection to the land, its people and their culture. It is the land that my ancestors walked on and worked on, and surely, a place where I have spent many lifetimes. The locations and compositions that I choose for my work are those that capture my soul and imagination, as well as my eye. Here, I do not feel that the land is simply beneath my feet, but is also within me. It is these moments of communion with the land that I attempt to capture in my paintings.
