“In Between” Paintings by Enda O’Donoghue
Our lives are, for the most part, made up of a series of “in between” moments. As in, “between” Christmas and New Years, “between” dinner and bed, or, “between” subway stops. Unaccounted for, “walking dead” type of time. Unfortunately we can’t bottle and bank it for later.
Irish-born, Berlin-based painter Enda O’Donoghue is determined not to throw away these moments. His paintings are informed by amateur digital photography he finds by trolling the web. The poorer the quality, the more he likes it. Important here is to understand his technique for translating all of these to canvas. If you have a moment, be sure to watch the video.
oh my, do I EVER love this work! Thank you for posting this, Betsy!
Interesting commentary. You seem to crave structure. Isn’t is possible that some people’s very rich, fulfilling and interesting lives are interrupted by Christmas, New Years and dinner? Maybe there is a balance. Some live in the lime light and are just fine and some live in the shadows and they are just fine too…
Check out my art work genre-in-progress. Its a cross between cryptography and Pointillism. This work linked below is a crude prototype but you get the point (pun intended). Password is a 4 digit code. Don’t worry, only 10,000 choices. Here’s a clue. Mount Vernon.
Very interesting video watching how the painting came together.
