Painting the city, boy!

Cork city is the focus of a new exhibition on Leeside.

Patricia Burns’ new exhibition City Paintings opens at the Lavit Gallery next week.

In this body of new work, Burns explores the parts of Cork city where she lives and works. Using these parts of the city she produces a series of paintings focusing on themes of home, yet contrasts that with the mystery and potential to be found in small places painted in a winter light.

There is a familiarity to these places, yet no distinct features of their location are immediately apparent. Composed of partial roof-tops, a tree, perhaps a telephone wire, Burns perfectly captures the feeling of walking home on a winter evening, from the glow of a streetlight to the chill in the air.

Born in Dublin, Patricia Burns studied fine art at Dublin Institute of Technology and Crawford College of Art & Design, Cork.

City Paintings by Patricia Burns opens on Thursday 21 March at 5.30pm at the Lavit Gallery and continues until Saturday 20 April. There will be an artist talk on Saturday 6 April at 11am.
