A native of Longford Zita Mc Garry 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 in abstract.
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.
