Fire and Ice
by Gillian Murphy


61"(155cm) x 41"(105cm)



61″(155cm) x 41″(105cm) – including the Frame – landscape orientation – large piece

WOW! This piece may just be the biggest piece that we have had in the gallery – and what an impact it makes!

Such a delicate and utterly gorgeous colour palette, with layers and depths of colour that are extraordinary. This is piece of artistic talent, using oil and cold wax, in itself a tricky process that becomes more about what you take away, than what you put on, artist Gillian Murphy has created a truly mesmerising piece of art with an intricate interlocking of geometric shapes and gorgeous pastel colours. Inspired by the both the colourful Japanese Koi fish, you will find varying silvers, greys, rustic browns and oranges, dusky pinks and whites – all brought together in the most adept way.

Like all Gillian’s work, although delicate, beautiful and almost ethereal – her work packs such a visual punch in any space – particularly at a metre and a half wide!

This would look incredible in a large contemporary space!

 Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
