IMAGINE  ….. An exhibition of paintings by Trudi Doyle

The following information  currently  appears  on the "Whats on " Visual art page of The Courthouse Art Centre

Artist Trudi Doyle returns to show her paintings at the Courthouse Arts for the third time.   Trudi was the first artist to show in the Courthouse when it opened in 1996. This exhibition offers much to feed the imagination and is an opportunity to view her original, intriguing and beautiful paintings.

Detail from "Cocoon "

"Eostra Holds the Moon" SOLD

 Trudi’s art has a distinct style and quality: imagination is the primary source for her work, 
Many images are offered to the viewer to interpret as they may. Take her large “Tree of Life" painting in acrylic on canvas for instance, one suspects a moral lesson but it is up to the viewer to decipher the puzzle.
Tree of Life 

Sea Dreaming  SOLD 

Trudi now lives and grew up surrounded by images of open skies, trees, fields , mountains, farmland and wildlife  which merge with remembered stories, and imagined scenarios to inform her artwork which has been described as thoughtful and surreal and certainly is both. 

She Ran with the Hunted
Birds and wildlife clearly penetrate her consciousness and resurface in her work.

Dream Journey 

Many of her images have qualities that defy analysis and which brings one back to view them again and again

To Sleep until Spring  (with Hedghog ) 

Trudi works in watercolours, pastels, oils and acrylics.  Her pastels have a dreamlike quality using an individual iconography relating to childhood and part of the pleasure for the viewer resides in identifying the motifs and sources of inspiration.

Fly me to the Moon

My Red Bicycle
Sometimes her work is simply beautiful and celebratory like her garden paintings, interiors, flower paintings and her still life pieces which show as Prionsias O’Drisceoil, Arts Officer, once wrote of her work ”a reverence for the everyday artifact”.
