Tracey Quinn

19 Jan - 11 Feb 2012

Peppercanister Gallery is delighted to announce it’s first ever exhibition by Tracey Quinn. Originally from Lisburn, Co. Antrim, she now lives and works in Dublin. Quinn studied in Leicester, England and Orleans, France, gaining an Honours Degree in Fine Art.

Her first Solo Exhibition was at Kerlin Gallery Belfast in 1989. Since then she has had eight solo exhibitions in Ireland and has been included in numerous important group exhibitions in Ireland, England, New York and Hong Kong, and has been a regular exhibitor at the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibition.

Her main concerns are light, colour, atmosphere and time, simplification of form and loose brushwork. She sources her inspiration from the Irish landscape, the ever-changing skies that cast shadows on distant fields, and tries to create an atmosphere or impression rather than a literal translation. Tracey has travelled and painted from Bali Indonesia to the Phoenix Park in Dublin, and to her home County of Antrim. This will be her first Solo Show in a number of years and promises to re-establish an artist of skill and accomplishment.
