Orla Clancy Art (Download The Catalogue)

I have drawn and painted since early childhood, and was greatly influenced by songs and stories all my life, as my parents were both avid readers. I also studied languages and later went to art college as a mature student, and graduated in 2004 from LSAD. I had previously studied the human figure extensively in part-time courses in the Netherlands, and became interested in capturing, suggesting and speculating on social dynamics in painting. I was also greatly influenced by photography, which I love both as a medium in its own right and a tool for making paintings and drawings.

During the period 2010 until 2015 I socialised a lot less, but continued to react visually to whatever was around me, so I took more photographs and started drawing objects that caught my eye because of the challenges involved in rendering them in two dimensions, resulting in still life studies. I still enjoy working sketches and photographs into paintings, and painting en plein air whenever I can. I don't limit myself to any particular genre, I like the challenge of working with different subjects.
