Using colour as a metaphor for the subconscious, my paintings are symbolic of the stuggle between earthly desires and the quest for what is sacred within us. The controlled but random quality of the liquid paint is an embodiment of our dreams, desires, the effects of gravity, time and impermanence. This is counter-balanced by a dedicated conscious striving to access and recognise what is true within ourselves through intuition and careful observation of the constantly changing inner and outer worlds around us, illustrated by the irregular movement and tactile surface quality of the paint. Each painting is a meditation on the restless search to explore the unattainable mysteries of the human psyche.
Biography: Elizabeth O'Connor is a full time, professional, internationally selling artist. Having initially trained in ceramics, Elizabeth then went on to study fine art, sculpture and photography at Nottingham Trent University. Her expressive style of painting is heavily influenced by this background in ceramics and sculpture, continually seeking to create texture and movement on a flat canvas, inspired by the forces of nature and the natural world. Her bold visual style creates a stunning impact on any interior from offices and public buildings to domestic settings. Elizabeth has been selling artwork for many years now throughout the UK and America, having featured in numerous galleries and exhibitions. Her work can also be seen in the latest Paramount movie directed by Gurinder Chadha (Bend it like Beckham), titled: 'Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging', chosen by set decorator Liz Griffiths, whose previous work includes 'Dr.Who' and 'Shaun of the Dead'.
