Inventing Solutions – Carol O’Connor
Carol O’Connor at deAppendix 4th April until May 26th
Inventing Solutions, Carol O’Connor’s current body of work reference nature, built environments and travel. Her process of layering paint and scraping away will often inform the narrative of the painting as she leans towards complete abstraction. Destroying the initial image and then returning some feature of it in an over and back, push and pull process adds physicality to the practice of painting. The idea of representation or abstraction is not the end goal but the process itself.
