oil painting on tile 15 x 15cm , frame size 33.5 x 33.5cm
Julie Moorhouse lives and works in rural County Kilkenny. Her work is usually a response to what is going on in the world around her. This body of work is her response to the 2020 corona virus lockdown. There is a distinct lack of human presence in these paintings. Like everyone she found elements of the whole 2020 experience challenging- but she also found solace in nature and her early morning adventures walking her dog. She enjoyed the quietness of this new world. She took time to wonder at the skill of nature and acknowledge that humans are not so dominant on this planet after all.
