Originally from France, Claire Buckley has been living
near Roundwood in County Wicklow for the last sixteen
years. She has studied art with the artist Paula Kearney
Whereas for the last few years, her work had been based
on her love for the beautiful nature surrounding her,
Claire's work recently took on an entirely new direction.
The two series Hope and Joy were inspired by photos of
children having fun as they are playing, giving the artist
the chance to express her love for life, and the search for
light, whatever that light represents for each of us.
For the Mexican Ceremony series, Claire got her inspiration
from small ancient Mexican statues (Ceremonial Gathering,
c.750 BC), and decided to explore the slightly darker side
of her personality!
I hope you enjoy your visit.
