Artist: Donna McGee
Artwork Title: ‘Poppy Corner’
Artwork Location: Fitzwilliam Street, Merrion Square, Dublin 2
Artwork Description: “I would like to paint red poppies because: Everyone loves poppies. They are vibrant and cheerful and appear to make people feel happy. They are free-form - can be touched up easily if vandalised. They suggest vitality / freedom”
Biography: The Irish landscape is my greatest source of inspiration. I aim to capture the essence of its timeless beauty with a balance between abstract and representational imagery. I tell the story in paint – recording the mood and feel-good memory.
