“It is impossible for me to make a painting which has no reference to the   powerful environment    in which I live”.  - Peter Lanyon.

 

Maureen O'Neill  challenges perceptions of our environment and how we interact with it.  She paints the places she loves and  inspire her. She lives  surrounded by the mountains and the sea. Her paintings  respond  to these landscapes and coasts, and evolve from memories and drawings working in an  intuitive manner.  Through abstraction she re-experience these places beyond a literal or realistic translation and finds a connection or memory through marks, gestures, colour and relationships of space.  Art is about telling the truth. Her canvasses are often painted and repainted so that traces of the original images remain present, creating layers of texture, colour and history.
