Elemental - Paintings by Siofra Kilroy

This year is just flying by, but the one good thing about that is we keep having new artists to talk about every month in the A.I. Friedman Gallery! For the month of July we are welcoming Siofra Kilroy.

Siofra Kilroy exhibited in galleries around Ireland from 1998-2007. She moved to New York in 2008 where she spent some years working in the auction house industry before returning to art. Siofra works in watercolor but utilizes it in a way that is more similar to how acrylic artists work. She strives to change how watercolor is used and perceived in the art community. Siofra particularly chooses subjects that redefine watercolor; black and white portraits and scenes drenched in color.

Her newest works have been a collection of large diptych pieces clayboard. They tackle the simplicity of movement. She limits herself to just five colors in order to minimize distraction for the viewer.

Stop by the A.I. Friedman Gallery anytime during the month of July in order to check out Siofra Kilroy’s unique watercolor paintings. ¬†And if you get inspired by Siofra and want to try out some watercolor for yourself, check out our upcoming event with Mike Teator!
