Eileen McCarthy is an abstract interdisciplinary Contemporary Irish artist and a member of Visual Artists Ireland. She is a post-graduate (Hons) of UCC and holds a B.A in Fine Art Painting, (Hons) from Limerick School of Art and Design. Eileen is a native of Tipperary. Her passion for art lies in her love of the Irish landscape environment. Her focus in this body of work is rooted in the human condition and its present relationship with the 1668 Bleach Field landscape in Co.Tipperary.

Astutely, this exhibition records a colonialised period in Irish society but equally, it is solidly rooted in the present.

Within this Bleach Field exhibition lies the ever-continuing development of Eileen’s art work from installation, poetry, lens based media and abstract paintings.

Eileen’s paintings are greatly motivated by the artist Robert Ryman. For the most part she uses only simple natural materials that communicate an authentic aesthetic language creating a space which connects the viewer to this landscape. This Bleach Field exhibition not only captures what has been lost but it also challenges us to consider our position in the present.

On close inspection Eileen McCarthy’s exhibition presents us with metaphorical challenges as she conveys what has been lost, what can be vaguely observed and what is concealed.

Finally, this introduction to Eileen’s exhibition, The Bleach Field, would not be complete without the mention of her community who are a central consideration in her art making.
