Ann Patrick O’Brien

Show ran from 11/1/2011 to 11/26/2011

MAINE CYCLES  works on paper

Opening Reception: Friday, November 4, 6-9pm

In her exhibit, “MaineCycles,” Ann O’Brien presents an exploration of “ordinary” objects transformed into paint. Colors, shapes and textures seek to involve the viewer with the medium. Commonplace objects, something that might be overlooked are noticed, inspected, and interpreted. The irregularities and diversity of the bumps or holes on an aging plant; the changing, subtle expanses of shape and color in a farm landscape; the impression of the mechanics and speed of bicycles may be recognized. Subjects are then re-interpreted and composed of subtle variations. O’Brien’s works are about the paint.
