An exhibition of brand new artworks from artists Laura Bryson and Esther O'Kelly, Canvas Gallery Belfast. Exhibition runs until March 2nd 2019
Esther O’Kelly BDES, BA, is an Irish Artist, from Wexford, living in Belfast. She graduated from The National College of Art and Design with an honours degree in Visual Communication. Esther has over 20 years experience working within the Creative Industry, in Dublin, Melbourne & Belfast. Esther's work celebrates the natural beauty of our rugged island the dwelling places dotted along it and the lives lived on our shores. Each piece follows the raw beauty and lines of the coast, vibrant colours and forms that seek to capture a memory and evoke a sense of place.
Laura Bryson is a self taught, emerging artist from Ballyclare. She has always been creative but decided to push herself with painting. She was recently a finalist in the NI Young Artist of the Year competition and was rewarded Highly Commended. Laura has always been drawn by the sea, so most of her paintings to date have been seascapes, inspired from the County Antrim coast. Working in acrylic and mainly using her palette knife, she like to create texture and evoke mood and atmosphere.
