Beatrice O’Connell focuses on the relationship between nature and culture in this, her eleventh solo exhibition.  The paintings are small and intimate with a pared back aesthetic.

The spectre of climate change looms in Beatrice’s work, specifically the lost connection with nature in a highly technologically mediated society.  The representations are of creatures and landscapes in flux.  We associate bees as forming a collective or unified entity.  When they are isolated as portraits they appear like a solitary actor on a stage, but instead of being empowered they appear vulnerable and in danger of obliteration.

A trace element of human presence is ever palpable.  The humble pollinators play a vital role in our global being empowered they appear vulnerable and in danger of obliteration.  A trace element of human presence is ever palpable.  The humble pollinators play a vital role in our global emergency and their decline is a cause for concern.  An anxiety and a sense of mortality is felt in the work, not only the creatures’ mortality but our own mortality as time marches on.  Beatrice has exhibited extensively in Ireland and abroad.

Her exhibition can be viewed in full on our website: www.tseac.ie
