The extraordinary art of Imogen Stuart is here presented in all its mystery and magical beauty. Thoroughly documented not only on the artist's work but also on her life, and the background of her artistic creativity, it explores the personal views and motivations of the sculptor behind her work, notably featuring an interview by Brian Fallon. Most remarkably palpable is the artist's proximity with nature, both emotionally and in her artwork, which strongly evokes our natural heritage as "children of the earth" regrettably imprisoned in our big cities. The present study features many sculptures on wood, as examples to this very strong feeling of nature in her work.
Imogen Stuart (b.1927) is a German-Irish sculptor. Interested in Irish religious heritage since her youth, she went on to become extremely influential in Ireland's artistic and cultural life, and was awarded the Mary MacAuley medal in 2010.
Brian Fallon is the author of An Age of Innocence, a study of Irish culture, as well as of a history of Irish art. He is the author of numerous artists monographs, and has contributed to art and literary journals and encyclopedias, as well as having been art critic of the Irish Times for 35 years.
