About Orfhlaith Egan

Irish based in Berlin artist dividing my time between art studios in Galway and Berlin. Having completed a degree in History of Art at Trinity College Dublin in 1999, I worked and traveled around the world before moving to Germany to focus on my art professionally.

Growing up in the West of Ireland influenced my exploration of the deeper memory world of archetypes and how they resonate in the landscape around me. As a practice, painting becomes routine, and my memory predicts what it will be like to do things I have never done before. Spaces of (and for) imagination are central to my work and rather than specific topography or 'views' are a deeper reflection on nature and the ways it can develop my experience of the present, by means of an archetypal memory that is a thread I try to tease out in my paintings.

I have taken part in group and solo exhibitions and my work is on permanent display at Freyer Marktforschung in collaboration with WÜS Atelier & Gallery. My paintings have been acquired for private collections worldwide.

I like to think that my artwork is always optimistic and extremely positive, creating a space of reflection and calm. Some pose questions in the abstract, while others simply a reason to stop; look; take a breath and remember.

As a self-employed professional artist I want to give you the very best value, quality and service that I can. All my original paintings are made on quality material, painted by hand and inspected carefully.

I have taken part in group and solo exhibitions. My work has also been acquired for private collections worldwide.

Three of my artworks hang in the HSE Corporate Finance Center, Irish Government Building, Dublin, Ireland.

My painting, Matterhorn, features on the cover of Mountains and the German Mind Translations from Gessner to Messner, 1541-2009 Edited by Sean Ireton (University of Missouri) and Caroline Schaumann (Emory University)

Through an open call, artists were invited to submit work on Westival 2019’s theme, ‘Brittle / Fragile’. The result is an exciting and varied group show showcasing selected work from Irish and international artists, featuring sculpture, painting, drawing and photography.

The theme proved a generous, many-headed muse, with artists responding in a huge variety of ways and presenting a multiplicity of creative interpretations – personal fragility, vulnerability as strength, frailty engendering feelings of protectiveness, the brittle geopolitical landscape, the fragility and ever-increasing vulnerability of our planet….

Thought-provoking and impressive in equal measure, this exhibition is a must-see.
