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 and uses unusual art media such as beeswax, egg tempera, pure gold. Japanese influences are apparent in her work.
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! “
