Internationally acclaimed Irish artist Emma Campbell in Birr with solo exhibition “The Butterfly Effect”

Running from 01 Feb until 15 March 2016 at Birr Theatre & Arts Centre , this stunning exhibition features some of Emma’s most recent works from her ‘Butterfly Effect’ range of paintings. Inspired by the colour of nature and beauty of a simple idea, her work is transformed by the use of intense pigment, movement and depth which she captures in an abstract twist. Her main theme “ The Butterfly Effect” uses contrasting ideas in nature from the colour and grace a Butterfly  portrays to the metamorphis and ever changing growth within. She illustrates this in her work trying to capture each painting with a sense of emotion through her use of colour. Each piece contains individual character making every painting unique and one of a kind.
