BOTANICUM Exhibition at The Leitrim Design House

in News

The Leitrim Design House are delighted to showcase a beautiful new exhibition of paintings titled Botanicum, by Irish artist Liza Kavanagh on ART WALL from Friday November 18th. Working predominantly in acrylics and mixed media on wood panels and handmade paper, Liza produces works which are vibrant and contemporary. This current body of illustrative floral still life paintings are inspired by the surface patterns of the decorative arts of the Arts and Craft movement and the vintage naturalist, botanical and ornithological studies of James Audubon, Maria Syblla Merian and Gerard van Spaendonck. In these paintings, Liza combines elements of the symbolic lexicon of historical works with a contemporary palette and compositions.

Liza Kavanagh is a visual artist and illustrator 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.

We welcome everyone to visit us and enjoy these beautiful paintings. This is a fantastic opportunity to support and invest in a talented Irish artists work. Liza’s work would make a very special gift for loved ones to enjoy for generations to come. Deposits are gladly accepted at any time on all of our Irish made gifts. This stunning exhibition runs through until January 2023, plenty of time to share it with friends!
