Artists I Like
People often ask me about the artists I like . The truth is there are dozens, far too many to list. But here are a few, not in any particular order. In putting this list together I was surprised at how difficult it was to actually get information on some artists so please be aware that some of these links may be tenuous. If the link is dead you can certainly find additional information by doing a simple Google search.
Patrick Graham: An Irish artist whose work just astounds me. Click Here.
Patricia Burns: Who ever knew dull and dreary Irish winter days could look so magical? Another contemporary Irish artist. Click Here
Maria Celia Verlini: This is one of the many fabulous artists I saw when visiting Argentina last year. I love the nostalgic look and how she’s brought all the different materials together. Click Here.
Francis Beacon: Another Irish artist who produced monumental work. I was kind of blown away when I came across one of his pieces in the Vatican Museum. You can see his reconstructed studio at the Dublin City Gallery (The Hugh Lane). An absolutely must see if you're visiting Dublin.http://www.hughlane.ie/history-of-studio-relocation
