ABOVE Spring Wood - Ireland

Marc Reilly

Marc Reilly was born in Dublin in 1956.  He studies at the National College of Art and Design and graduated in 1979 with a Diploma in painting.  He was previously a member of the Visual Arts Centre, Dublin as well as the Temple Bar Galleries and Studios and held a one-year residency at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.  He is currently a member of the Graphic Studio Dublin, and of the independent Studio Artists Studio, Dublin.  In 2005 Marc completed a M.A. in Glass Design at the National College of Art and Design.

Marc's work practice varies from loose watercolours to large expansive colourfield work on canvas, but they all originate from the same source which is Marc's relationship with and observations of nature.  He makes almost daily pilgrimages the year round to the Clara Laragh region of Wicklow, often driving there and back for the sake of one good hours painting.  All the watercolours are done in situ, which can be seen in the different results achieved from painting the same scene and can occasionally be seen in a more physical way when, during particulary cold weather the watercolour freezes before it is absorbed by the paper, giving a craquelure effect.
