The Changing Colours of Nature
The exhibition curated by MG Paris brings you closer to the artist and intends to highlight her artistic path and the special place that Nature has in the process of her watercolour and abstract paintings.
The artist proposes two different media both focused on the importance of Nature, her source of inspiration: its smells, its sounds, its tonal changes, represented through expressionistic abstract works and delicate watercolours.
To learn more about the artist:
Rine Philbin was born and grew up in Co. Galway, Ireland. Nestled between the Wild Atlantic Ocean and beautiful rolling landscape of Connemara. Gardener, photographer, animal and nature lover, living near the sea and a lake and feeling the smells, sounds and tonal changes in the ocean.
Coastlines, lakes, green lands and rivers are a constant in her life and a great and never-ending source of inspiration. Rine Philbin is a self-taught artist; she hasbeen painting since primary school and now she paints full time in her studio. After having studied at Trinity College, Dublin, she gave up a permanent job to pursue her first love, art.
Nowadays she paints her local areas, inspired by the sea, mountains and fields, birds, pets, and wildlife that surround her. She works with all different mediums suchas oils, watercolours, acrylics and ink, experimenting with them.
Her art is in private collections around the world.
In 2020 Monteoliveto Gallery has appreciated the works of the artist and selected them to participate in the Contemporary art Fair in Paris 2020, postponed due to Covid-19.
In this beginning of 2021 Monteoliveto Gallery launches a series of new virtual exhibitions to face the problems that the pandemic is giving to the organization of physical exhibitions.
For this program we are associating with the french charity association “2500 voix” that helps in the fight against children cancers.
That is why you can find in the third room, and this for all the cycle of exhibitions, an artwork made by the artist Marion Cadet for the association to support the cause.
This artwork has been created from drawings by children who couldn’t be healed.
