“I confront ongoing themes such as love and death, memory and dreams, looking for movements and gestures that generate a spiritual energy, the main concern being to capture a sentiment of emotions, melancholy sensuality in contrast to tenderness and compassion. Through the exploration of colour, light, contrast and perspective I create an earthiness to my characters. Their physical presence and vitality is countered by a sense of their alienation and isolation achieving elusive, enigmatic and ambiguous forms. My works are refined through past experiences and technicalities. I take a figure in its simplest and most traditional form and develop it using different marks. I explore unforseen qualities within the painting through shadows and contours as it emerges into a contemporary and ultramodern piece.” Mary Winters-Doran B. A. Honours in Fine Art Mary Winters-Doran has exhibited widely throughout Northern Ireland in both group and solo exhibitions, and has even exhibited as far as Ohio,USA.
