Hi Aoife,Well done on the beautiful work, your mezzotints have such life!P.S. See you in work tomorrow :)
Hi Aoife,your new work looks great.Take care
Just looked you up when I saw you got a prize at Lessedra. Congratulations! Your monoprint of the monkey(that was in the R.D.S a few years ago) now lives in Italy...we love him!
Great website, Aoife, you're one talented lady.
The moth on your home page is truly remarkable! The depth of perspective within all your pictures shown is breathtaking! Lucky Swansea to have you in Residence!
Amazing work Aoife, The amount of detail is awesome.
Beautiful work. I love the quality of the mezzotints. Do you rock all your own plates?!
Hi Sinead, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, I rock all of my plates myself- it takes a while, but it guarantees a reliable ground. :-)
WOW... was just searching the web to see if mezzotint prints can be lightened as my little gem from 1782 is so dark, it is hard to see and appreciate, when I came across your site. Amazing is all I can say, except that it is said with a smile and a bow to your talent. Regards from across the pond.
Thanks so much for your kind comments, Linda! I really appreciate you taking the time to look and get in contact. I hope your little mezzotint hasn't disappeared entirely!
Aoife your work strikes me as being quite unique. For some reason, several of your pieces remind me of Japanese prints! The work is simple and beautifully rendered - which for me, are two of the main criteria for good picture making. I was particularly impressed by the Rino and the Doberman Pinscher, each of which, at least to my amateur eye, are extremely well technically executed, but more importantly, also convey that elusive and ineffable quality that a work of art simply has or does not have. As i think i either heard or read somewhere, "what it is cannot be expressed, but you know it when you see it". I believe that for any artist to somehow manage to achieve this magic even once, is all too rare. So, well done. Kind regards. Jason.
Thanks so much for visiting my website and for your kind comments, Jason. It's always good to get positive feedback on the work. I agree with you on your point about simplicity in art: I believe that a cleanly rendered image can have more narrative implications than a more crowded image. Glad you liked Rhino!
Just bought “Preen” in Schull but “Clash” is my favourite. I don’t think the national gallery will part with it though. Will keep an eye out.
I'm so happy to hear that "Preen" found itself an appreciative home 🙂
I'm in the (painfully slow!) process of making my pieces available here, but in the meantime I'm happy to sell existing works where I still have existing prints. I do have some left from the edition of "Clash", so feel free to getbin touch if you're interested in that or any other work in the future.
Have a lovely weekend!
