Eimhin Farrell’s etchings aim to portray the natural world in a traditional intaglio printmaking style. His love for Irish landscape stems from having grown up in Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan along the shores of Lough Muckno, and frequenting adjacent forests. As a big fan of master prints, he tries to utilise a similar style when creating his etchings, while also trying to give the prints a contemporary dynamic through use of colour, etc. Eimhin believes primary resources are a crucial and exciting part of research, and taking photos and spending time in nature is vital to his practice.
