The Scottish Gallery is pleased to welcome Hannah Mooney for her first solo exhibition at The Scottish Gallery, Notes from the West. Hannah graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2017.

Her primary subject is the landscape and seascapes of the West Coast of Ireland. Painting largely en plein air her work is deeply rooted in traditional landscape painting, with focused engagement on the relationship between light and the land, capturing an essential atmosphere of time and place.

Meet the Artist

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.
