Product story

This is the first print O’Reilly has produced. His multi-layered and multi-coloured screen print exploits the medium’s expressive and gestural potential to powerfully evoke sensations within different landscapes ranging from the intimately domestic to the epic sublime. O’Reilly’s imaginary and sometimes idyllic landscapes resemble real scenarios where he places mystifying objects and figures that relate to personal memories and conflicting feelings. Found photographs as well as everyday encounters and journeys provide the inspiration for O’Reilly’s work. 

This print was one of a suite of four small-scale works produced by recent RA Schools graduates to celebrate the opening of the Keeper’s House (other works in the suite are by Adham Faramawy, Nancy Milner and Charlie Billingham).

 All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools
