ART GALLERY original paintings by Mary Wallace
Contemporary Irish artist Mary Wallace is best known for her unique and vibrant paintings. Precious bowls and moonjars, exotic fruit, flamboyant hens, cockerels and other creatures including fish and animals. Her creative style is abstract and surreal.
She is inspired by life and nature. She uses unusual art media such as beeswax, egg tempera, pure gold. Japanese influences are aparent in her work.
created a body of paintings unlike anything I have done before. Kintsugi is the repair of
broken porcelain using gold. Whilst the intrinsic beauty remains, the flaw is given respect
and the preciousness enhanced. This concept has resonance for so many people. They
are fascinated by my use of pure gold too! “
