"Play of Light: Black and White Photographs by Megan O'Beirne"
2002-08-04 until 2002-08-31
Osteria da Arman
Treviso, , IT Italy

This exhibition presents a series of black and white photographs that explore light/dark relationships and the texture and rhythm they create across the page. Megan O'Beirne's evocative images of Treviso (little Venice) contrast with abstract patterns caught on the ultra-modern architectural planes of the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao. The artist has completed residences in Itlay and traveled in Spain recently.

During a visit to Treviso in September 2001, I was enchanted by the play of light on the old stones of the city and on the river Sile. I delighted in the tranquillity of the green oasis that encircled this beautiful place. Then, in Bilbao the midday sun revealed to me the magic of the form of the Guggenheim Museum. My photographs communicate a sense of the harmony and the beauty of these two subjects.

Originally from Dublin, now Megan O'Beirne lives and has her studio in the South East of Ireland.

A wide interest in literature, Irish, English,and Italian and some years residence in Italy (researching for an M.A.) are among the bedrock influences in her artistic life.

Years of exhibiting her art at an amateur level led to a five year course in Fine Art in Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design, and Technology (DLIADT) from which she graduated in painting and photography.

She is a founder-member of KUBE, an arts group comprising three painters and a print-maker.
