Veronica bolay 2012

Veronica Bolay was born in Germany and moved to Ireland in 1971. She has participated in major group shows in Ireland, Italy and France and had eighteen solo shows in Ireland in recent years. Veronica has received the Fergus O'Ryan Memorial Award from the Royal Hibernian Academy, the Keating McLoughlin Medal and ESB Award as well as the prestigious Liam Walsh Award in 2006. Her work forms part of the major Irish collections. She is a member of the RHA and of Aosdána. During her residency Veronica concentrated on the theme of 'Shelter' and its many-faceted aspects. This is an ongoing concern in her work. The courtyard of the Centre Culturel Irlandais added a new insight due to the social and cultural interactions (past and present) within its space. She worked with oil on canvas and pencil/charcoal on paper.
