Welcome to Art by Carmel where you can view & purchase original artworks by Award-winning Photographer Carmel M Cleary

Collection: Bonmahon "Explorations"

Bonmahon "Explorations" limited edition framed b&w prints

limited edition of 20 signed hand-printed images

Nature fascinates and inspires me. Rock, which appears solid and immobile, is shaped and softened as water insistently carves a pathway for itself. Boundaries are overstepped. As I photograph nature it is framed by my interpretation and echoes human sensuality. 

Growing up in Waterford, not far from the stunning coastline, Bonmahon remains her inspirational place of choice.

"Cleary's photographs, all taken in one small cove in Co Waterford, imbue water-worn stone with the softness of flesh. The patterns of fissures and joins recall details of the human body. They make beautiful images." Aidan Dunne, THE SUNDAY TRIBUNE
 
"I was especially taken with three untitled photographs of limpets. I never thought limpets could look sensual, but Cleary's bold use of grey and shadows transform them entirely. They achieve a wonderful sensuality." Alannah Hopkins, THE SUNDAY TIMES
