This painting, Wild Garlic and a Gentle Breeze, depicts a dreamy moment on a springtime foraging expedition during one of the lockdowns of the recent pandemic.
An escape from the bleak monotony of being stuck indoors, parks became a vital place to unwind and experience natural wonder.
A visual artist from Dublin, my paintings depict social life in Ireland and the natural landscape with explicit subjectivity, often blurring the line between reality and fantasy.
My work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions throughout Ireland, and is housed in public and private collections. You can see more of it at owendeforge.myportfolio.com and on Instagram at @odeforge.
