A Tarn is a small, mountain lake, sitting in a hollow at the foot of high mountain slopes all around it. This painting is quite extraordinary on few levels. It is incredibly funky and contemporary in style. The depth and perspective achieved using layers of colour, light and shade across the mountain range, is magnificent. The combination of realism and geometric shapes works very well, and finally, the use of gold leaf throughout, brings a shimmer, a shine and a wonderful element of lavish, luxury to this piece of artwork.  This is a striking – talking point – piece of art.

Gillian Murphy is a celebrated, professional artist living and working in Dublin. Having lived in the West of Ireland, Murphy is inspired by the landscapes and waterscapes that she was regularly in contact with. The sense of peace that emanates from her work is palpable.

Highly collectable work – Framed Original Art – Irish contemporary art – gold leaf and acrylic – stunning artwork


 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.
