Katherine Liddy

Katherine Liddy’s art is continually developing, shifting and maturing. Her early paintings are far removed from the work we see today. Over the years, she has explored a variety of mediums and ways in which to communicate her chosen themes. Her Oisín Gallery solo-exhibition in 2004 illustrated a departure from her instantly recognisable figurative work and presented stylised, virtually abstract images describing the mystical energy of Irish culture. Merging conceptual and realistic interpretations of the west coast of Ireland, this genre of landscape painting was a new avenue for the artist. The work attracted admirers and collectors from all over the world, including the organisers of Sardinia’s annual Arts Festival, where she secured third prize out of the 40 participating international artists, and an invitation to exhibit in Venice, California.
