27 April - 3 June
Liz Doyle is currently based in the west of Ireland in Donegal. Having always been drawn to the West, travel and new experience have had a huge influence on her work. Born in Germany she spent two years of her childhood in Nepal. She raised her children in Wales and moved to Donegal in 2007. In 2016, for her 60th year, she fulfilled a dream and travelled further west to San Fransisco in search of the work of the Abstract Expressionists of the 1950s, and in particular the works of Richard Diebenkorn and Franz Kline.
Three years ago, Liz studied cold wax painting with the American artist Rebecca Crowell at Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ballycastle. During the course she visited the haunting remains of the five thousand year old farm settlement at Ceide Fields, which was the inspiration for a number of her recent paintings including several in this new exhibition Due West.
