The Garden
05-28 February 2009

Margaret Corcoran enters the landscape.  Bold brushwork, strong colours, expressive marks describe and celebrate being.

Flower gardens, cherry blossoms, castles, real but exotics locations allow a play of expectations, where we both enjoy and question what we are seeing.  Moreover, the way paint is applied prevents any simple reading of the work as representations of the surroundings they portray.

The Garden is Margaret Corcoran’s fifth solo exhibition with Kevin Kavanagh Gallery.  She lives and works in Dublin.
