Artists Eye: The Fairy Rath
The Fairy Rath by John O’Grady – www.johnogradypaintings.com
John O’Grady is an Irish artist living and working in France. He paints his Irish landscapes from memory and they represent the places, times, and moods experienced whilst living there.
When describing this acrylic on board, John says, “The Fairy Rath holds a special place even now in Irish country traditions, a particular tree or trees around the rath would not be touched for fear that it would bring bad luck from the fairies living in the Rath. There are hundreds of these Raths dotted throughout the country, each one holding a special place in the hearts and memories of local people.”
