Sorca O’Farrell’s work reflects her emotional response to her surroundings. She captures the atmosphere and mood of a landscape by building up areas of textured darkness in charcoal and ink, and rubbing away to reveal contrasting areas of light, creating descriptive layers imbued with feeling.
O’Farrell is a graduate of the National College of Art & Design (Fine Art Printmaking) and Dun Laoghaire School of Art & Design. She lives and works in Howth, Co. Dublin. Her work is held in many private and public collections, including the National Gallery of Ireland, AIB collection, Trinity College Dublin, and the Office of Public Works.
