Celtic Castle II
> make enquiry
Kilchurn Castle was a fortress, a comfortable residence and later a garrison stronghold, and contains the oldest surviving barracks on the British mainland. Its five-storey tower house dominates the complex, with a lower hall, courtyard and barracks below.
Kilchurn Castle was built in the mid-1400s, and it remained the base of the mighty Campbells of Glenorchy for 150 years. After the first Jacobite Rising of 1689, Kilchurn was converted into a garrison stronghold, but was abandoned by the end of the 1700s.
From the Artist:
“Hidden from view until a gap emerged on the drive to Glencoe from Strachur, Kilchurn almost shouts through the valley to stop and take notice. The energy and melancholy of the place touched my soul. I made this painting with old souls in mind who may have graced the fabric and surrounds of this Castle. A layering of acrylic washes and charcoal marks offered a mystical piece.”
Geralyn Mulqueen, Irish Artist, based in Downpatrick Co Down, Ireland.
Geralyn uses colour spontaneously in the emotional translation and captures the essence of reflection and emergence uniquely felt by the individual. The pieces are vital and honest, always allowing for movement and growth. Geralyn has exhibited across Europe – Berlin, London, Paris and Dublin, The MAC in Belfast 2019, Dubai 2020. Featured artist 2019 Stendhal Festival.
