2020-2021 Watercolours in the landscape, under the travel restrictions of Covid
Imagery, stored by acute attention in the present, re-activated by acute contemplation in private is how I work as a poet.
In Michelle Boyle’s work I see this acuity above all. The daring, muscular brush strokes of her painting, form a vibrant conversation with the remarkable variety and delicacy of her palette.
In her plein air work we find at first glance, familiar features; the purple trees, and violet grass might be Irish but transformed by a mischievous glance and the ardent light that plays over them, seems born of a stronger sun, in a sensual land-Mary Dorcey, Poet Ireland
