Darragh Treacy was born in 1973 and raised just outside Avoca, Co. Wicklow. Darragh is predominately self taught and favours the use of oils with an impressionist style. It was Darragh’s father, the artist Liam Treacy, that first introduced Darragh to painting “en plein air”, something which Darragh still enjoys today. Darragh’s subject matter is varied and includes still-life, landscapes and street scenes. Darragh has exhibited at the Wexford Opera Festival since 2011. He is a member of the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club, exhibiting at its annual exhibition in Dun Laoghaire and W.B Yeats anniversary exhibition in City Assembly House Dublin. While working all year round on private commissions, his work can also be found in leading galleries and in private collections at home and abroad. Darragh also works as a set designer and his work has brought him much critical acclaim and numerous design awards from the Institute of Designers of Ireland

#wbyeats #irishart #irishartist #irishwriters #irishwriting #oilpainting #oilpainter #writing this is a few years old but I am planning on sharing some of my paintings relating to Irish writers, this one was for an exhibition in city assembly house in Dublin in 2015, it is based on WB Yeats "An acre of grass" which is from his later years, he viewed his more confined surroundings through the window of his later home in Rathfarnham in Dublin, the painting in the painting is of the view from my own fathers grave and I included it as part of my take on WB Yeats poem.

Winter Light: The Liffey
Darragh Treacy's painting perfectly captures the essence of this year's Exhibition Theme.
The Liffey is a constant presence within Dublin's never-ending changes.
Here it reflects Gandon's 18th century Custom's House, the 19th century Loop Line Bridge, the 20th century Liberty Hall... and the 21st century extension of the Abbey Theatre.
