Carmel Mooney :: Irish Artist, 8 Jan 2007 [cached]
Carmel Mooney began to emerge as a serious painter within the Irish art world with her first solo exhibition at the Lincoln Gallery, Dublin, in 1983. Her early work reflected a childhood affinity with the countryside, expressed in landscape paintings of bogs, fields and cattle, and still life paintings including a recurring subject, birds. A lecturer in the History of Painting, she was also Artistic Director at Daon Scoil, An Daingean, from 1981 to 1991.
In 1989 she spent time at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre at Annaghmakerrig, Co Monaghan, concentrating on strengthening the structure of her painterly work, in particular the role of line. A year later a visit to Lanzarote introduced her to its volcanic landscape, and she subsequently returned many times to work there. These two events proved a significant turning point in the development of her work and heralded the introduction of her volcanic series of paintings, first shown at an exhibition in Dublin in 1993. A fascination with volcanoes has also taken her regularly to the still active Mount Etna in Sicily. She is a member of l'Association Volcanologique Européenne.
