Solomon Fine Art presents a solo exhibition of work by Frances Ryan. Titled ‘The Secret Garden’ the works lie somewhere between the artist’s memory and imagination. Each oil painting is pushed through a process of layering and sanding, combining observational drawing, photographic collage and spontaneous markmaking. A graduate of IADT, Ryan has won numerous prestigious awards, including the Paul Henry Landscape Prize at the Royal Ulster Academy Annual Exhibition, the Towry Award for Best Work from Northern Ireland at the National Open Art Competition, and in 2011 she was a finalist in the Golden Fleece Award.
Secret Garden: 2 – 24 October
