ARTIST STATEMENT, “Technique is the Consequence of Concept.”

 

While making my art, I may not know exactly where I am heading, but I do know how to get there. By allowing my technique to be the consequence of the painting’s concept and following a working path of expected surprises coupled with fearless exploration, I’m collaborating with the nuances and idiosyncrasies of both the materials and the surface.We three engage in real and complicated conversations. By revealing moments from these conversations, we create unique visual experiences. Similar to peeking, I adjust as I go.

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Phil O’Malley, a professional studio artist and designer in Indianapolis, IN, lived his first decade about forty miles west of Cape Cod followed with the past four decades painting in the Midwest. Phil has created two and three dimensional works in fine art, culinary art, interior design, architectural design, graphic design, and event design. All these endeavors have symbiotically fed his art to maturity. He studied Interior Design in the Purdue School of Engineering and earned a BFA from the Herron School of Art and Design.
