Mailo Power often hosts exhibitions of her work in the Athenaeum House Hotel. Next upcoming exhibition is taking place in March in the Zak's Restaurant.
Colour and observation play an integral part of artist Mailo Power's expression. Having originally studied Zoology in UCC after leaving school, in many ways her latest body of work can be seen as going back to her roots.
Drawing inspiration from hours spent walking in Mount Congreve Gardens, there is a sense of new life through out the work, a true window into the restorative relationship between nature and life. Canvases are full of emotion evocative of a passionate spirit, semi abstract flowers reflecting Mailo's experience of Spring in Mount Congreve Gardens.
Whether viewed briefly as the blooms of Spring or studied for long intervals, viewers are sure to delight in their inescapable inclusion in the process and can rely on the experience to invigorate following even the most fleeting of moments.
