Bart O’Reilly begins his paintings with the original space of the raw unprimed canvas. Bart improvises through the application of acrylic paint and a limited palette of greens, golds and earth tones to see where the process takes him. His approach is as a meditation and an attempt to be present. The body of work is entitled Tigh an Chnoic because as a series they are strongly reminiscent of the landscape where Bart grew up, the Dublin/Wicklow Mountains.
Jinie Park creates paintings that reveal the experience between the unexposed and exposed parts in the common highway landscape. Her current body of work is inspired by her experience of commuting to and from Baltimore from Landover, Maryland over the course of six months. Park captures the moments from the outside of a car window and tries to reveal these specific experiences through her painting by drawing the view outside and revealing the inner parts of the
surface on the typically unexposed side.
