AboutOff the Wall, Wales' premier modern, contemporary art gallery's next show features Ciara Lewis, an Irish artist based in Wales. Ciara is one of our most popular and talented artists, having won Off the Wall's X Factor competition.
This show will illustrate Ciara's travel around Wales and beyond, including Morocco and other European cites and demonstrates the versatility of her work.
Ciara Lewis was born and educated in Dublin, Ireland. She studied art and design at the College of Marketing and Design Dublin before moving to do Textile Printing in West Yorkshire. She moved to London to become a commercial printer before settling in Shropshire in 1992.
She is a member of Abstract Edge, an established group of abstract artists a number of who have exhibited at the GreenStage. Ciara's first solo exhibition was in Dublin in 1984, since then she has exhibited whereever she has lived; extensively in Herefordshire and Shropshire since 1992. More recently she presented her work at the March Collection of the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea.
Her work ranges from expressionistic realism through to the purely abstract, using strong surface pattern and texture to capture her environment. The work conveys a sense of calm, the use of strong colours subtly adding an element of tension and structure.de
