February 3rd - March 1st

The Doorway Gallery is delighted to host an exhibition by Lucy Doyle  called ‘Rococo’ which will open February 3rd and will run until March 1st . Lucy Doyle is a much loved and collected Irish artist and 2012 sees her celebrating 30 years of painting professionally since leaving college in 1982.

Lucy has her own unique painting style that she has honed over the years, and her bright colourful and joyous paintings are instantly recognizable.  Her subject matter is predominately still life and interiors often incorporating female figures that move within and inhabit her decorative compositions. ‘Rococo’ is Lucy’s 15th major solo show’, which the gallery will host during the month of February. 
The mood of ‘Rococo’ is inspired from that period in French Art History where a more relaxed, natural art style emerged.  Artists and designers developed more assymetrical flowing design elements into their work, incorporating natural symbols of birds,  flora and fauna. Lucy taps on all these aspects of Rococo in her collection and experiments with a more lighter hued colour palette. She achieves this by working with earthy warm base notes of siennas and umbers then layering on thickly applied oil paint in sherbert pinks, french greys, powder blues and buttery yellows.  Lucy’s paintings are full of verve and life and bring a smile to your face, embodying all that is good, in a celebration of feminine wholesomeness.

"Take an established painter, such as Lucy Doyle, who makes cheerful, decorative works with a great feeling for pattern and colour"  AIDAN DUNNE
