Eileen O’Sullivan: Veiled and decorated
Familiar motifs interest me as relics of experiences; for example, the motif of the curtain insinuates the privacy of a home, the publicity of the stage and the deceptive nature of painting and photography.

Presenting new artworks made in 2020 and 2021, Meath artist Eileen O’Sullivan takes inspiration from the seemingly mundane to explore the language of painting and the opportunity to create atmosphere through block colours and a saturated colour palette. Using both gestural marks and carefully built-up layers of paint, O’Sullivan invites you to consider the illusions of space, human presence and human experience embedded in these paintings.
Eileen O’Sullivan graduated from the National College of Art & Design in 2015 having spent a semester at the Royal Academy of Fine Art, Antwerp, Belgium in 2014. She is currently working from a studio in Dublin while participating in the Turps Banana Correspondence Mentorship Course, London.
