Exploring Influences / A View from a Window

Develop your own artwork that says something about where you are - your place

To kick-start this project Avril looked at the gallery collection for inspiration and selected four paintings that explore views from a window. Each of the paintings have an individual mood, style and composition, that suggest different emotions and meanings.

CAG. 386, A.M. O' Hare, Houses in Cork, with View of Shandon, 20th century.

Avril sketched the composition of one of the paintings as a starting point and then used collage to create something new. Avril’s collage used scraps of old maps for clouds in the sky, maybe because she really misses travelling, this gives her artwork an individual meaning.
