What's it Supposed to be? by Jamie O'Neill

Down Arts Centre

What

Abstract art can test a person's patience sometimes. In this series of oil paintings I want to engage the viewer in a way that is often the sole preserve of figurative art. 

My goal is to make work that has a universal appeal yet retains the purely abstract qualities I love. Focusing primarily on composition and gesture I fine-tune all the visual components to achieve a unique balance. I proceed without knowing how a painting will end up but what emerges in the finished work is usually as surprising and compelling to me as I intend for everyone else.
