The Leitrim Design House are delighted to showcase a beautiful new exhibition of paintings titled ‘Gathered’  by Irish artist Liza Kavanagh on ART WALL on Thursday October 8th.This collection features a selection of contemporary still life paintings capturing the joy to be found in everyday objects. Liza creates stylized, colourful paintings of much loved vessels, bowls of ripening fruit and seasonal flowers.  We welcome everyone to visit us and enjoy these wonderful uplifting paintings. We expect Liza’s work will prove very popular with our customers. This is also a fantastic opportunity to support and invest in a talented Irish artists work.

Liza is a visual artist living and working close to the famous Curragh Plains in Co. Kildare. Liza began her studies at Grennan Mill Craft School before completing her Bachelor Degree in Fine Art at the Limerick School of Art and Design in 1994.Working predominantly in acrylics and mixed media on board, Liza produces works which are vibrant and contemporary.

Liza shares her inspiration; ‘The still life’s I create are always inspired by familiar and everyday objects as these speak to me of hearth and home. I love the simple shapes of jugs, bowls and other household vessels and the endless variety of patterns and colours which often decorate these objects. In these paintings, colour, texture, pattern and the use of simplified forms compose the key elements of the work.’ The artist goes on to state ‘In essence the work is about the simple pleasures of life, a favourite jug filled with seasonal flowers or a bowl full of the first fruits of the season. Creating these paintings is my way of capturing the little things that bring joy into our daily lives.’

If ever we need some joy in our lives it is now. Liza’s work would make a very special and uplifting gift for loved ones to enjoy for generations to come. Deposits are happily accepted at any time on all of our Irish made gifts. This stunning exhibition of vibrant still life paintings runs through until Nov 28th 2020, it’s a show not to be missed.
