Visual Arts Exhibition: Annabelle O’Reilly

Title of Major Work: Echoes of Being - Painting

“My work explores the concept of memory and the way someone’s essence can remain in objects and places even after death,” said Annabelle.

“Like memories, watercolour can show the most vibrant, intricate detail, but can also be blurred and cloudy. Every plant and relic within the paintings is significant to me, and to my experience of growing up and losing a parent. The landscape of Echoes of Being is dreamlike, almost a fairyland, yet also weighed down by all the memories and nostalgia it holds.”
