Colleen O’Hara | Shifts in Space
O’Hara creates imaginary landscapes inspired by her interactions with real physical space. This body of work is rooted in an exploration of the material nature of paint. Paint contains a vast amount of potential and unpredictability. Working in a space between control and freedom, she responds to the materiality of paint, allowing her the opportunity to investigate the physical world. Brush marks, drips, and splatters become a documentation of her existence and engagement in the world. The act of making, doing, and experiencing is what gives us information about our surroundings.
