Geraldine O' Riordan

Based in Cork, Geraldine O’Riordan is an artist interested in architectural scenes and interiors that have witnessed many changes through the decades. Her paintings, containing great light and stillness, provide glimpses of some of the finest Irish Georgian architecture, streetscapes and vernacular buildings. At her opening, in 2013, of A Grand Tour, Peter Murray, Director of the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork, suggested that Geraldine's paintings showed great skill while revealing an important narrative on Ireland's built heritage.

Geraldine was the recipient of a Tyrone Guthrie bursary award, from Cork County Council, in 2013. She has attended residencies at Cill Rialaig, Co. Kerry, the Burren College of Art and at Moux in Southern France.
