Kelly O’Connor’s “Last Resort: Color Me

I tried to make to out to the West Austin Studio Tour this year, and unfortunately, this is as far as I got. One gallery, one show, and I had gone to this gallery for the specific purpose of buying a Catalog for WEST. So I figured, while we’re here, let’s see the show.

Here it is: photos with sparkles and stuff, styrofoam towers, lawn furniture and, my favorite, a hand-built geodesic dome complete with bejeweled wasp nests. I was most intrigued by the fact that the panels in the dome were irregularly shaped pentagons and hexagons. That must have been a bear to figure all the wonky angles and construct!

Anyway, I lament the fact that I missed all the painters, esp. the non-objective ones, but there weren’t too many of them anyway….

Oh, well, there’s always next year. :\

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.

  • This painting for me is about senses, mostly smell, probably the billowing qualities of the shapes reminding me of air, but it seems really fragrant to me.
