Rikki van den Berg Solo Exhibition at Solas Art Gallery

The solo show by Rikki van den Berg at Solas Art Gallery is a collection of abstract landscapes and figurative work.  Rikki van den Berg was born in Holland, spent her formative years in Ireland. Moving back to Holland, and bringing an unusual cultural background, left her vulnerable and estranged from her native country. In 1997, Rikki returned to Ireland, settled in County Cavan and established herself as a figurative and abstract painter, embarking on a personal journey in search of identity and place, resulting in abstract landscapes and figurative work.
