Marilyn Gaffney at The Eden Gallery
The Eden Gallery at Cavan County Museum presents artworks by visual artist Marilyn Gaffney.

Marilyn Gaffney holds an MFA from the National College of Art and Design.  She is the recipient
of the John O’Leary Award in 2010 from Sligo Institute of Technology.  She received the
D.O. Sullivan Medal Award in 2009 from Sligo IT.  Exhibiting both nationally and internationally;
her most recent work is currently on display in Naperville, California.

I am interested in our relationship to landscape and how particular places hold memories and
can embody emotional responses.  A snapshot memory of a place may be recreated through
automatic responses with material as a form of remembering.  This relationship of memory and
landscape brings about an emotional response because the place holds sentiment.  The notion
of Urban Memory and the loss of certain things within a place when it has been changed
features as research within my work.   I am interested in the combination of representation
and abstraction in painting. 
Exhibition runs until 16th September 2014
