Into the Landscape is Hannah Mooney’s second major presentation with The Gallery. Her first exhibition, Notes from the West, saw the launch of a major talent, a graduate from the Glasgow School of Art and recipient of the prestigious Fleming-Wyfold Art Bursary. Two years on and Mooney’s work continues to develop.
Hannah Mooney prefers a small scale, her epic subject translated through memory, distilled by the mind’s eye into short poems in paint. She has gained confidence in her subject, the landscape around her home in Mayo, Ireland: Mulranny, Lough Swilly, Scardaune, Ballyglass, the names adding to the romanticism of the paintings.
