MARK O’NEILL AT HIS VERY BEST
” Back to Mine Mark O’Neill’s new exhibition opened in Gallery Zozimus on October 6th to humongous applause.The new body of work showed O’Neill at his very best with 32 new pieces all oil on board.He does not have to go far to find his subject matter as you can see from his paintings.
The title can be taken on two different levels. Many subjects featured in this exhibition are found back in my home in County Wexford.
“Flowers and vegetables featured in the still life pieces have been grown in my garden, sheep and cattle can be seen in neighbouring fields, pathways and lanes are travelled during my dog walks.
“On a more expansive interpretation, Back to Mine refers to a return, in style, to a more painterly fashion that I used in my work several years ago says Mark
It’s 14 years since O’Neill had a solo exhibition in Dublin lets hope it won’t be that long before his next one. This exhibition is well worth a visit and it might just solve some of your Xmas presents.
Back to Mine will run in Gallery Zozimus, 56 Francis Street, Dublin 8 until October 31st .
