‘Flight Of Fantasy’ is a captivating exhibition that harmoniously blends abstract landscapes with intricate collages and patterned drawings. The exhibition is a journey through colour, texture, and abstract forms meticulously created over several years, both at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre and the Cill Rialaig Arts Centre. The intense layering technique used in many of the works gives them a sculptural quality, blurring the lines between painting and sculpture.

A dedicated environmentalist, O’Reilly explores her profound relationship with the earth through the materials she works with. Her use of gold and abstract mark-making in her paintings is a testament to her reverence for the planet and stands out as a symbolic representation of her environmental consciousness.

O’Reilly explains her creative process, “I enjoy starting with a shape and losing myself in the drawing. Tearing up old drawings and using a range of paper in the work is an important part of my process. Within the abstract acrylic paintings layering of a range of mixed media is incorporated which adds to the depth and complexity of the work.”

Visitors are invited to lose themselves in the intricate details and vibrant layers of this thought-provoking collection.
