Winterage Cows & Landscapes – by Visual Artist Liz Moloney
The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is delighted to showcase an exhibition of work by Visual Artist Liz Novelli Moloney entitled ‘Winterage Cows & Landscapes’. This art exhibition forms part of a schedule of Winterage events organised by Burrenbeo.
Inspired by her immediate surroundings, Liz explores through painting and drawing the whimsical nature of farm life in Doolin and the Burren. Cows are idolized and personified through the medium of oil on canvas. Her landscapes evoke the mysterious weather patterns and symbiosis of rock, sea and soil found in the harsh but beautiful landscapes of the Burren. The rich colours and brush patterns serve to evoke and crystallize the delicate, cyclical nature of annual transhumance or cattle herding which is unique to the Burren. Known locally as ‘Winterage’, this ancient farming practice has helped sustain the unique eco- system of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark for generations. A banquet for the senses awaits you.
Liz graduated from GMIT, Galway having received a Degree in Art and Design in 2009 and a B.A. (honours) in Fine Art in 2010. Her work was selected for the RDS Student Art Awards in 2010 and she has enjoyed solo and group exhibitions in Ireland and the U.K.
