Una Sealy Portrait Paintings Irish Women

Una Sealy’s paintings are based on domestic life; interiors, streetscapes, landscapes and portraiture. Painting from observation her work is organic evolving as the various elements in her composition change, appear, disappear. Her work has been described as ‘Kitchen Sink Realism’ a slice of the everyday; the troubles, thoughts and feelings we’re all familiar with. In short it is biographical by nature.

What makes her work stand out is the intimacy she manages to capture on the canvas, a knowingness that can only come from a relationship with the sitter, the subject. There is something of her in every picture, it is a door for us to walk through, an entrance into a world in which we are familiar and are thus able to contemplate and ruminate over. There is a truth in her work, a drama, a narrative we can all relate too. Much of her work is large and if you get the chance to see her work you should grab it.

Here’s what she has to say about her work:

My paintings focus on life as observed around me, often depicting family, friends and surroundings in North County Dublin, or further afield while travelling. I work mostly directly from life, preferring to be in the presence of whatever it is I am painting.

She’s currently exhibiting her new show ‘A Piano in the Kitchen and other stories’ until Saturday 23rd February, 2013 at The Draíocht, The Blanchardstown Centre, Blanchardstown, Dublin, Ireland.
