Monica Corish is an artist and a writer. In her painting, as in her writing, she follows where her fascinations lead. She works in oils, acrylics and watercolours, painting the sea over and over again, in all its many moods and weathers. The variety of approaches in her Seascapes Gallery reflects the sea's endless variety, from the quiet ultramarines of Sky over Tullan Strand and the underwater world, half dreamt, half seen, of Full Fathom Five, to the lively palette knife work of Below the Lighthouse.
Her second source of fascination is everything else -- hence the title of her second online Gallery Animal, Vegetable, Miracle (taken from the title of Barbara Kingsolver's wonderful book of the same name). Here, in Castlecaldwell, you will find trees that look like they are aflame; a tiger, burning bright, in Uncaged; the sculptured silence of Silver Moon; and a watercolour field of impressionist flowers in Meadow.
