Orfhlaith Egan paints A Soft Day and more

Irish based in Berlin artist dividing my time between art studios in Galway and Berlin. Having completed a degree in History of Art at Trinity College Dublin in 1999, I worked and traveled around the world before moving to Germany to focus on my art professionally.

Growing up in the West of Ireland influenced my exploration of the deeper memory world of archetypes and how they resonate in the landscape around me. As a practice, painting becomes routine, and my memory predicts what it will be like to do things I have never done before. Spaces of (and for) imagination are central to my work and rather than specific topography or 'views' are a deeper reflection on nature and the ways it can develop my experience of the present, by means of an archetypal memory that is a thread I try to tease out in my paintings.

I have taken part in group and solo exhibitions and my work has been acquired for private collections worldwide.

I like to think that my artwork is optimistic and positive, creating a space for curiosity and reflection. Some pose questions in the abstract, while others simply a reason to stop; look; take a breath and remember.

As a self-employed professional artist I want to give you the very best value, quality and service that I can. All my original paintings are made on quality material, painted by hand and inspected carefully.

Please contact me if you have any questions about my art and studio practice.
