Exhibition opening: 25th October 6pm – 8pm.

Meanwhile, Rummage until Combined, an exhibition by artist Eileen OSullivan. The title references the process of creating paintings in a state of flux. It brings together ideas of searching, questioning through action, making decisions in physical space, and the results of the presented in the form of an object; a painting.

O’Sullivans preoccupation lies with the materiality of paint. Painting is a process, the energetic playing of vivid colours against one another. Her source images often reference an intimate perspective of her mundane encounters of the world: friends, home life, the unspectacular.  

Eileen explores how processes of making are, for her, comparable to impalpable cognitive processes and theories in psychology. Painting combines space and time. Painting is an act of prolonged observation, of both the source material and the surface on which the new emerges.

Eileens work straddles abstraction and figuration as devices to serve to disorientate and intrigue. A painting is a tangible object, a sentence in a language that stems from a broad history of artists conversing.

Eileen OSullivan (b.1992 Meath) lives and works in Dublin 8. She graduated from the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) with a BA in Painting in 2015 having spent a semester studying in Antwerp. Shortly after graduating she was described by RTE as one of the ten most notable Irish painters under the age of thirty to watch.In 2018, OSullivan was awarded The K&M Evans Painting Award at the Royal Hibernian Academy 188th Annual Exhibition and The Surveyor Visual Artist Award, Solstice Arts Gallery, Navan, Co.Meath. OSullivans work is held in collections including the Office of Public Works, The Law Society of Ireland, National University of Ireland Maynooth, as well as many private collections nationally and internationally.
