Brian O’Neill

“My journey as an artist cannot be defined by months or years. My life is my work and the discoveries I make along the way continue to amaze and challenge me, as I explore my talents in ways that are at times unexpected, yet always rewarding. The great masters of classical realism have inspired the art that I create. It is the absolute commitment to the art form itself, and the technique these great painters spent their lives working towards that I have committed myself to.”

“During the past several years my art has grown tremendously. My contemporary realism work is rendered in oil on wood panel, using many transparent layers of color to glow and absorb light, as well as refract it. As my oil pieces have evolved, so too have my acrylic paintings. I once again find inspiration in what is classic by painting dynamic flowers and still life imagery on canvas treated with a rough surface and glow of metallic paint. The subject matter is timeless, but the manner in which I present it is current with a gentle nod to the past.”

“My compositions are powerful, yet restful. I leave just enough blanks in the story to allow the viewer to fill them in with their own imagination. After all, the works that I create are never really mine completely. It is a gift to share these paintings and have them appreciated by so many.”
