Carol O'Connor

A LongingCarol OConnor - Estate 1sm

Until Friday 15th March

The work in the exhibition “A Longing” stems from two years of work and is the first major body of work since her degree show at NCAD.  The paintings represent all that has happened to her in that time and also reflect her view of the broad and accelerating changes in the world around us.  Colour plays a pivotal role in reflecting desires, fantasies and the hope for an optimistic future.  Images are collected from magazines, papers etc and are often inspired by literature, news stories and personal experiences.

Carol has a B.A honours degree from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland. Prior to this she worked for a number of years as an administrator in the Toradh Gallery and as a youth arts worker. She has had three solo exhibitions in Ireland, most recently in 2009 in the Solstice Arts Centre in Co. Meath and in the Watergate gallery in Kilkenny in 2010. She won the ‘Going Solo’ art award from Meath County Arts Office in 2009 and she has work in the collections of Axa Insurance, the Office of Public Works, Meath Co. Council and Bank of Ireland.
