Painter/mixed media/ video/ photography Studio 12, June - September 2004
Irish born artist Eamon O’Kane currently lives and works in Bristol. Memories, travel and the large-scale panoramas of the 19th century are recurrent themes in O’Kanes work. In 2002 O’Kane began working on a project called Ani-Mates, the project is based around a group of fictional art assistants and has resulted in animations and large-scale installations. O’Kane’s current work has developed into an exploration of the ‘ideal studio space.’ His recent paintings consist of views of architectural interventions where the man-made meets with nature. These works further draw out O’Kane’s conceptual concerns about art and architecture and reflect a growing maturity in his work.

Eamon O' Kane's work was shown in the Process Room, first floor, west wing galleries from August 23rd until September 5th 2004.
