Sunset Strips & Stains

 

Evolving from a fascination with identity, particularly the fluid and unfixed nature of it, Painter, Lucienne O'Mara makes drawings from the figure which she then simplifies and abstracts.The poured areas of paint that soak into the unprimed canvas, becoming a part of the surface, have come to represent the different elements of ones self – each seeking a harmony with one another, a kind of balance.  The outlines mark the prescribed space for that particular stain. The irregular shapes reflect the way in which ones own identity is constantly in a state of flux - it can't be solidly defined.
