Jennifer Ribbe - “IRELAND IN BLOOM”
Be embraced by the warm, vivid colours of Spring and Summer at Ireland in Bloom, an exhibition by New York based painter Jennifer Ribbe. This is Jennifer’s debut exhibition in Ireland and takes place at Art Upstairs from 6th to 21st June 2008. The official opening of the exhibition by writer Suzanne Power will take place on Friday 6th June at 8.00pm.
Jennifer’s Ireland in Bloom is designed to calm one’s senses from the chaos and intensity of modern life. The exhibit focuses on the rich warm tones of a variety of flowers and gardens around Ireland.
Jennifer is recognised for her larger-than-life paintings as well as her ability to create a balance between a water colour appearance and traditional oil-based application. Her passion for colour and density, combined with her love of the outdoors, inspired this floral collection.
Jennifer works as a corporate art director in New York City. She has been painting for more then eighteen years. She seeks to “help people find calmness and joy in their lives.”
