Dubliner Marie Fallon is a full-time artist and art teacher. Her paintings celebrate her twin passions and she is frequently to be found sketching along the coastline from Blackrock up to Malahide. Her keen observational skills are reflected in the way in which her subjects are shown to be captured in entirely realistic settings of young children at play and local landscapes. Her latest body of paintings show a further diversification of her subject matter and explore the still life genre reflecting the Dutch still life of the 1600’s and a more contemporary focus on this concept is explored. A paring back of the objects within an arrangement and simplification exhibits an isoliation and in turn an amplification of the subject in these works. The ambient light focuses the objects and shows a genuine empathy for this eternally fascinating genre. Marie is a member of the Dublin Sketching Club and has exhibited on a regular basis over the last seven years at The Leinster Gallery, Daffodil Gallery, Mulvaney Gallery and Kilcock Gallery. Her work can be found in the OPW collection and many Corporate and private collections.
