Exhibition of Living Paintings By Marty


Christ Church Cathedral, Crypt

Friday 14th November

19.00 – 22.00

Marty is an artist based in Dublin, this exhibition is her first debut showcasing her work. Trained as a makeup artist, she has spent the last 5 years working in Theatre, TV and film. Marty grew up surrounded by art, her grandfather, father, uncle and sister are all artists so her move into visual art is no surprise. Martyâ??s lifelong interest in faces and the figure has been the driving force behind her latest work. Inspired by a range of artists and eras; colour, tone and shape define her work.

This exhibition of living paintings is a collection of portraits painted directly on to the models who pose for them. Using acrylic paints, the 3D subjects appear 2D. The streets of Dublin are a key inspiration as she sees emergent faces and figures everywhere. In her work she has found a way of capturing this ethereal transformation as her faces appear from out of the darkness with a powerful intensity.
