Eoin O'Connor

3 Mar, 2006 - 23 Mar, 2006

Painter Eóin O’Connor merges the representational and the abstract in a series of brightly coloured, sparse and loosely painted works at the Ashford gallery, opening on March 2, 2006. Alluding to the intangible and invisible elements in the modern environment of communication and transmission, his works bring together architectural forms and scientific phenomena in the manipulated spaces of a pictorial medium
The geometric frameworks, patterns and loose organic shapes which comprise the subject of this exhibition, draws from the influence of technology, scientific study and analysis, in a playful yet subverted manner. Quite like a schematic diagram or instructional drawing, O’Connor believes painting to be an instrument which has the ability to display the non-physical, a tool to reveal forms and processes and a means to edit the structure of the natural environment.
In this series of paintings, simplified representations of orbiting bodies, radio waves and patterned signals co-exist in compositions alongside rudimentary architectural structures, occupying an environment devoid of human presence. The painting Transmitter-Receiver typifies this underlying substructure of a modern day episode. A solitary building with radio waves observed as brightly painted lines, operates in an otherworldly atmosphere, conjuring notions of a forensic habitat, quietly removed from human interaction. The exhibition also includes the triangular painted sculpture Prism 2006.
