John O Connell (b. Derry, Ireland 1935)

In a semi abstract manner in both oil and acrylic. O Connell explores color relationships from transparent washes to rich, heavy impasto moving easily through the genres of landscape, still life and nude.

His early artistic education came in the form of a B.Ed programme at Queens University which concentrated on practical studies.  At this time O Connell immersed himself in experimentation in a quest for his own personal style.  An early influence on O Connell was the work of TP Flanagan, both artists sharing a powerful connection with all that is landscape… structure, colour and movement.

My early work was influenced by the strong tradition of Irish landscape - earth colors, ochre and greys, sky, bog, mountain mist, artists such as George Campbell, Basil Blackshaw and TP Flanagan.”

I love the work of all the colorists from the Post Impressionists, the Fauves, Abstract Expressionists and Painterly Abstractionists, de Stael and Rothko.

O'Connell has exhibited extensively for almost thirty years.

His work is held in many public collections such as BBC and the Hilton Hotel Group and in private collections in Ireland, UK, France, Germany and USA
John O'Connell still works from his Belfast studio.
