> DESCRIPTION

Roxy Walsh is a Northern Irish artist living in London and this will be her first solo show in Ireland since 1995.

The exhibition will consist of a series of paintings made during 2007-2008 called Lady Watercolourist At Home, as well as a wall painting made specifically for the MAC’s Sunken Gallery.

Lady Watercolourist At Home was so called because the paintings were made during the artist’s year of adoption leave, when Walsh sublet her studio to work from home to care for her twin baby boys.

The paintings are watercolour on paper. Small-scale, brightly coloured and full of pattern and incident that can be funny, sad, baffling, and tender. The images move seamlessly between abstraction and cartooning – the round eyes of the assorted characters look out from the paintings, a red tongue licks a brilliant yellow sky and a green owl with round black eyes clings to the end of a branch.
