Caroline Fay is an Irish painter, recently moved from London to Upstate NY. Using Dutch masters as muse, her realist paintings have a modern twist, dealing with issues including the relation between man and nature and contemporary environmental concerns. In her work, symbolism and metaphor help point a spotlight on the importance of preservation and conservation of the natural world. In 2016, Caroline was chosen to exhibit in the London Irish Art Exhibition in London’s impressive Central Hall, Westminster Abbey, which celebrated some of Ireland’s great artists.
“Painting in a realist style forces me to be thoughtful and patient. It allows me to capture the natural beauty of the subjects I paint and helps me understand, appreciate and believe in the importance of what I’m doing.”
