New works by Grainne Cuffe


'The sensuous curves of the open flower, curious form of the bud, and gossamer threads of the seedhead have captured my vision and attention over time. Drawing the essence of a plant, as opposed to the scientifically botanical is my modus operandum. To look into the quite ordinary, you can find the truly beautiful."

Grainne Cuffe will give a talk as part of National Drawing Day 2014 on Saturday 17th May 2014, 1.30pm. Booking for this talk is essential, email: gallery@graphicstudiodublin.com or phone 01 679 8021

Grainne Cuffe specializes in vibrant and detailed studies of plants and flowers. In this exhibition there will be a mixture of both the very large-scale work that Cuffe has become known for, alongside a series of smaller works, some of which are based on the beautiful form of the tulip. Her blasts of colour with their exquisite blends and her somewhat playful forms bring alive the character of the plant.

Grainne Cuffe is a Fulbright Alumni. Grainne Cuffe's etchings are regularly on show in the Graphic Studio Gallery and The Printmakers' Gallery, Dublin, as well as the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin and the Royal Academy, London.

Cuffe was awarded the D. O'Sullivan Graphics Supplies Award at the Watercolour Society of Ireland's 2012 Annual Show for her etching "Delphinium II". Her etching "Big Tulip I" also won this prize in 1998 at the RHA. Cuffe has recieved commissions from Fingal County Council, Hastings Hotel Group, Oriana Art Collection, P&O Cruises and her work is held in many collections both in Ireland and internationally.
