Tidal by Tina Brooks (Winner of the Cairde Visual Hamilton Gallery Award)
Brooks’ paintings are based on observations of Strandhill peninsula and its weather. Using a method of laying down and scraping off paint, each layer and brush stroke informs the next informing an emotional response to the environment and place.
For centuries landscape artists have looked to nature to better understand the mysteries of life, our relationship with nature and the human condition. Given our current position in the 21st century – climate change, global warming – the subject matter is more urgent than ever.
