AT HOME ON THE FARM: Meet the Artist - Mary Burke In Conversation



Úna McCarthy






Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA) is delighted to have commissioned this body of work from Mary Burke, which forms this exhibition, At Home on the Farm. The celebration of the working and domestic lives of farmers in County Limerick is at the heart of the exhibition – it is not a romantic view but neither is it harsh; rather it is a sensitive and realistic view of the various aspects of rural living in Ireland in the 21t Century.

Mary Burke is a highly regarded artist who, after a successful project in Tallaght, Dublin and Stradbally, Co Laois she was interested in stretching her sightlines and I was interested in a celebration of this changing metaphysical and physical environment of rural Ireland.

This rich exhibition is the result of the openness of the participating farmers and Mary’s obvious passion for this project...
