An Exhibition of artworks by Roisin Fitzpatrick – Artist of the Light, opens at the Consulate General of Ireland, New York.  The exhibition runs from 3rd October to 30th November and is in collaboration with the Irish American Heritage Museum.

This exhibition provides a contemporary interpretation of all aspects of light, from the illumination of Newgrange at the winter solstice to various aspects of light in nature including the Whirlpool galaxy, water crystals and fractal designs.  Each piece of art expresses beautiful, intricate patterns with simple elegance using natural silks and fine crystals to create entirely unique art forms.

Following a career at the United Nations, European Commission and European Bank, Roisin experienced a near death, life-changing event from a brain aneurysm which ultimately inspired the creation of the Artist of the LightÒ contemporary artwork collection. Evoking an inexplicable sense of serenity and peace, Roisin’s primary intention through this art is to introduce and share the bliss and beauty of the light and create a greater sense of well-being in both residential and corporate environments.

Artist of the Light® artwork currently features in the private and public collections of many leading European and US art collectors including Mark Burnett, TV producer of Oprah’s All Stars and The Apprentice and actress Roma Downey from Touched by an Angel.  Golfing legend Christy O’Connor Jnr has also purchased her artwork.  Roisin’s art is featured at Richard Branson’s resort near New York and the Fitzpatrick’s Hotels in Manhattan. It was also exclusively showcased at the Conscious Capitalism Conference in Bentley University 2011.  Roisin has also been invited to speak at the United Nations SRC Enlightenment Society in New York.
