‘lightly touching the earth back’ showcases O’Connell’s beautiful maquettes and her poetic use of materials, including bronze, stainless steel, silver, resin and found objects.

About

Eilis O’Connell’s inspirations are drawn from a wide range of sources natural or man-made, including archaeology, architecture, plants and things she collects while travelling or hill walking by the sea near her home.

Ireland’s pre-eminent sculptor Eilis O’Connell, studied at Crawford School of Art, Cork and Massachusetts College of Art, Boston. She is a Royal Hibernian Academician, has won awards from the British School at Rome and the Royal Society of Arts and undertaken residencies in both France and Spain.

Gallery Pangolin and Pangolin Editions, one of the leading foundries in Europe, have had a long history of working with O’Connell. Over the past 30 years they have shared the same passion for cratfsmanship and inventive use of materials to create some of her well known monumental works.
