Rosemarie Langtry is a contemporary visual artist working and teaching in her studio in Ballinahown, Athlone Co Westmeath, Ireland.
She is inspired by the nature that surrounds her home in the heart of Ireland – particularly rural and bog-landscapes, found and corroded man-made objects, and the abundant waterways her native county is known for. These inspirations are reflected in her highly evocative work, which creates a strong, organic sense of place when you view it. Her exhibitions, which have taken place all over the world, give voice to her unique perspective on the natural environment she works in, and the human remnants she recovers within it.
She works in a variety of media including Encaustic, Mosaic, Stained glass, Abstract and Traditional painting. Rosemarie facilitating adults, children and community group art and craft workshops.
In the Moment… Hues and forms of the local landscape, rust and found objects combine to inspire my artwork providing an intriguing art form to encapsulate memories from bygone days.
Bog cotton, heathers and even decaying antiquities
become entwined within the layers of paint, melted wax and vibrant pigment to enthral and captivate the viewer with an air of mystique.
