RINGFORTS SERIES - oil paintings on canvas - 50 x 50 cm. - OPW Collection - 2013
Ringforts can be found throughout rural Ireland. They are mysterious, of another time. Some may have originated just a few centuries ago, others are truly ancient dating back to prehistoric times. Unless they have been archaeologically excavated – which only a small number have been – then we know very little of these places’ original purpose and use. They are generally small areas of high ground encircled by trees and shrubbery which offer a good vantage point of the surrounding area. They are peaceful places seldom visited by the general public yet, to the spiritually and historically inquisitive, they can evoke feelings of ‘other’ energies, of spiritual significance. Such feelings could be said to represent the artist’s muse.
