The Seamus Ennis Art Centre Presents:

"Soul of Truth"

By: Josephine Geaney


We are delighted to present Josephine Geaney and her exhibition "Soul Of Truth" in our Easter Snow Gallery.

Josephine Geaney is a visual artist from Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. In 2008 She obtained a BA Honours Degree from Limerick School of Art and Design while at the same time acquired the student awards from the Hunt Museum and the Collector Generals award for excellence in painting and since then she has been exhibiting continuously for the past twenty years

Her work is on display in Permanent Collections at: University of Limerick, Department of Defence, Revenue Commissioners, Hunt Museum, Tipperary County Council, Law Society of Ireland, Nenagh Tourist Office  and Private Collections Nationally and Internationally. She is also represented by Draiocht Gallery, Adare, Co. Limerick, The Beara Gallery  and Gallery1608, Bushmills, Co. Antrim.

Josephine works mainly with the medium of cold wax and oil paint using many tools to apply the paint such as squeegees ,brushes, household utensils and her own personal favourite her hands which she feels gives a looser, fluid and immediate application to the surface.

 Her paintings mostly derive from her subconscious and personal memory of the environment, atmosphere and place. Josephine’s work holds a tension between  very flux organic marks to contrast with linear and controlled lines which creates a tension and unease between these mark makings. She uses her craft to create art designed to lure the viewer in and challenge them to analyse in order to add their own narrative and emotion to it..

The title of this exhibition is called “Soul of Truth”, a line taken from the well known song and unofficial anthem for Tipperary “Slievenamon” These paintings are representative of the landscape of her native Tipperary and the folklore attached to it, deriving from her personal relationship with its landscape, its elements and also an expression of her unconscious which is influenced by her emotions, memories and feelings while in the landscape which is brought forward through the process of painting.     

This exhibition can be viewed online or in our Easter Snow Gallery open Monday-Friday 10-4.00 p.m. or by appointment at weekends.  To make an appointment contact Colette on 087 9697054.
