His imaginary and sometimes idyllic landscapes resemble real scenarios where he places mystifying objects and figures that in fact relate to personal reminiscences and produce psychological relationships between conflicting feelings.
The artist gets inspiration for his works everywhere, from photographs to collages, but especially from everyday encounters, journeys and meetings.

About Michael O'Reilly
Talented young artist Michael O’Reilly studied at Wimbledon College of Art before embarking on his postgraduate diploma at the Royal Academy Schools, from which he graduated in 2013.
O’Reilly’s paintings focus on the medium’s presence and its capacity to describe. He explores perceptions of the outdoors, locomotion and states of fatigue. Always setting out to articulate sensory experiences, O’Reilly’s work may conjure anything from the feeling of sheltering underneath an umbrella or rafting in a wobbly boat.
His work has appeared in several RA Summer Exhibitions and has also been displayed at venues and exhibitions including Artworks Open for Barbican Arts Group Trust, Aftersun at The Space in Sevenoaks, The Catlin Guide Launch: New Artists in the U.K, Postgraduate Printmaking in London at Clifford Chance, the Royal Academy Schools, JM Finn corporate offices, HSBC Headquarters, Matthews Yard, GX Gallery and Copenhagen Place among many others.
