Orfhlaith Egan paints A Soft Day and more
As a self-taught mixed media artist based in Berlin, I explore the deeper memory world of archetypes and how they resonate in the landscape around us.
Growing up in the West of Ireland influenced my exploration of memory and imagination, both of which are central to my work and rather than specific places or people are a deeper reflection on nature and the ways it can develop our experience of the present, by means of a generational memory that is a thread I try to tease out in my paintings, drawing inspiration from folklore and mythology to unravel the hidden stories that our natural surroundings hold.
Combining traditional drawing and painting techniques with digital manipulation and collage elements to create intricate and vibrant artworks that inspire curiosity and reflection, some artworks ask abstract questions, while others are simply a reason to pause, look, take a breath and remember.
Please contact me if you have any questions about my art and studio practice.
