Eryn O’Neill - Urban Interactions
August 12–26th 2019


The work for Urban Interactions is the result of months of repetitive outings, in all conditions, to gather enough information, visually and mentally, to create sensory charged paintings suggestive of a figure navigating a city. Eryn's work explores her co-dependent relationship of running and art, and while she does not consider the running portion as carrying any artistic merit; it is a vital element in the process. The imagery she collect on her routes varies depending on the time of day, and location.What she ultimately decides to use as inspiration for a painting often reminds her of a pause in the run, a time when she was either forced to stop due to construction or a barrier, or when she pauses to take in the environment. These are not pre-planned and the resulting images are a personal mapping of the city
