and portraiture, experimenting with composition, light, colour
and technique. Her work is in many public and private
collections in Ireland and abroad.
The Paintings in this exhibition focuses on Cora's response
to elements of farming and landscape around Ballycastle, Co
The main body of work has emerged from observation of Marts,
and the Ballina livestock Mart in particular. She was fascinated
by the subject matter presented, the sheer bulk and shapes
of the cattle, and their movements, both graceful and orderly.
The atmospheric conditions of the interior, provided by light
from skylights and partly opened doorways, the reflections
on wet floor surfaces, the myriad of patterns, shapes and
range of colours.
The human interest, mainly farmers, inspecting, bidding and
socialising, all provided inspiration and a wealth of new
knowledge on this compelling subject.
