Brian O’Rourke (B. 1968-) is a recent award-winning graduate of the Limerick School of Art and Design’s Fine Art Painting programme whose work can be found in State, National and
International private collections.
Having grown up in Shannon, Co.Clare and now working/living in Abbeyfeale, Co.Limerick, his practice is primarily concerned with the rhythms of nature within the Irish countryside.
A part of his continuing Attractor series, this work utilizes the language and iconography of fishing for trout and salmon on stretches of the river Feale in West Limerick and North Kerry, highlighting the importance of engagement with our waterways.
O’Rourke holds the belief that a country’s health should not be gauged by its economic growth or G.D.P., but should instead be measured by the quality and biodiversity of the land upon which we rely.
