Ronan O’Reilly’s work is concerned with the dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious mind. Through the use of traditional media such as watercolour and ink, he strives to explore the personal and the collective unconscious. His paintings and drawings turn to ancient teachings from a range of cultures, religions and mythologies, questioning the residue that they may have in our unconscious. His work refers to archetypal symbols and images and their perceived meanings. He aspire to create a space that contains both real and imaginary worlds, in which our base fantasies and drives, fundamental instincts, and our relationship with the natural world may be contemplated.
