Artwork description

This is the first print O’Reilly has produced and published. His multi-layered and multi-coloured screen print echoes the painterly approach of his predominant painting practice in which he often compares the touch of his brush to Hemingway’s approach in the Old Man and the Sea: how the fisherman carefully studies the marlin’s movements under the water, he concentrates on the mediums expressive and gestural potentials to powerfully evoke sensations within different landscapes ranging from the intimately domestic to the epic sublime.

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.
