Artist, educator, author and marine biologist, Carmel T Madigan, grew up near the Bridges of Ross here on the Loop Head Peninsula. Having one of the worlds geological phenomena as her very own childhood playground, certainly played a very important role in Carmel’s life.  Carmel has carried a fascination with marine life, through to her artwork and this piece is a real ode to her love for the many extraordinary rock pools of Ross.

A very large piece at a metre and a half in width – one of her largest in fact – this utterly striking mixed media piece of art has so many surprises the closer you look; from the hidden surprises of the cracks and crevices and the inclusion of texture and such a specific colour palette, that brings that real sense of depth and of wonder. Carmel manages to bring in everything from the slippery surface, to the anemones, the algae, pebbles, sand and sea stones, and the yellow lichen. This amazing work would look incredible in a large contemporary home or public space. Superb.

 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.
