Zita McGarry, Longford and Kildare artist

A native of Longford Zita McGarry was formally educated in Mercy Convent boarding school and went on to study hotel management in Switzerland. Interaction with different cultures and situations combine to produce memories through image.

In my work I create a dense and richly textured surface by manipulating materials (polyfiller/gel) through etching, carving and lively brushwork. These elements combine with colour washes and muted tones to create a striking balance between abstract expression and control. It is a process of reduction, of isolating the essential ingredients of subject, distilling it down and re-building the image around it.

Represented by following galleries; The Waldock, Blackrock Dublin. The Denis Collins Gallery. Wexford. The Clifton Gallery, Galway. The Henry Street Gallery, Newbridge, Co. Kildare.

Works by ZMG can be found in Private collections worldwide, including, Ireland, England, France, Channel Islands, Germany, Portugal, USA, RSA, Australia and Japan.
