The Gort Framing Studio is pleased to be displaying Debbie Hunt’s expressive and colourful paintings. 

There is also a collection of smaller original signed watercolours, and printed images of her work. 

Opting out of conventional education, (fine art) Debbie took to the road and traveled with a donkey in Morocco that led to a life on the road with horses and wagons in Southern Ireland. She had children, goats, dogs, chickens, mares and foals and lived this way of life for 15 years. Always the artist she built wagons and other horse drawn carts and painted them in an original version inspired by the gypsy decorations. Settling in West of Ireland in 1999 she concentrated on painting and had several successful solo shows. Currently Debbie's is practicing her art in wild and wonderful places, the results being deeply rich and expressive paintings.

Aisling O’Leary

Aisling lives in County Galway ,she loves her work as a massage therapist and essence maker in the Resting Tree , Bothar Mor in Galway City. She is inspired by nature and cats. Colour and texture light up her world .

Aisling describes below what inspired her to create the paintings we are presently exhibiting.

Materials include natural dyes, screen paint, acrylics and tissue paper  . 

 

“At the start of this year, I was approached by the poet, Aoife Reilly. I was so inspired by all of Aoife's poems it took weeks to settle on which ones to paint. I choose ‘August Mullach Mor’ ,’Spring Medicine’ and ‘Hydrogen plus Oxygen’.

After reading them over, I wanted to try and paint the poems. The imagery within the poems felt so naturally familiar: the words had such texture that it was like a creative blood transfusion into my days.

In ‘Spring Medicine’, it was the words. The words bottle the enchanting scent of gorse enchantment in February; when you drink in and hang on to any colour you can find after the blank canvas of winter. It was the watery-ness of ‘Hydrogen plus Oxygen’ - words that explain the feelings of water like, “water laps like a lullaby, my water sears the air”. The crystal clarity and gentle compassion in this poem grabbed me. In “August Mullah Mor”, the poem sounded like a cry: one that awakens a birth right of ever person to be a witness to this amazing life force we have been given .
