Into the Landscape

02 December 2021 - 23 December 2021

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.

Place of Birth: Ramelton, Co. Donegal, Ireland

Hannah Mooney was born in Ramelton, Co. Donegal, Ireland and graduated in 2017 from Glasgow School of Art. She has won several awards as a student and since graduating, in recognition of her compelling talent as a painter most recently at the New Contemporaries Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy where she won the major Fleming Wyfold Bursary. She currently works in two distinct subjects; still life and the landscape and in both she is an instinctive, natural painter deeply concerned with the matière and traditional composition. Her work has already been acquired for the James Nichol McBroom Archive and the Hottinger Group.
