Event description
Solomon Fine Art is delighted to host a solo exhibition of new work by one of Irelands leading artists, Eilis O'Connell.

About this event

Materials Matter presents new sculptures and drawings made before and during the Covid pandemic, combining sculpture made in collaboration with skilled stone carvers in Pietrasanta, Italy, and a range of more self-contained yet innovative works created within the limitations of lock-down. Using materials such as steel, bronze, stone and new bio resins, O’Connell explores different material properties to make hybrid organic geometric forms that she carves or constructs by hand.

Eilis O’ Connell was born in Derry and studied sculpture in the Crawford School of Art, Cork and the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston. She has exhibited at the Venice, Paris and Sao Paulo Biennales and the Guggenheim Museum in Venice. In 2018 her outdoor sculptures were shown at E1027 the famous home designed by Eileen Grey in Cap Martin, France. O’Connell’s work can be found in numerous public locations in Ireland and the UK. Other privately commissioned works can be seen in Lismore Castle, Waterford, Cass Sculpture Foundation, Chatsworth and in private gardens in France and Spain. O’Connell is a founding director of the National Sculpture Factory, Cork, a former member of the Arts Council of Ireland and a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy and Aosdána.
