Through my art I am endeavouring to capture the city, its geometric forms and space within, with its facades of glass and geometric shapes, that appear to suspend or fall from the sky, reflecting and absorbing energy and light. In my work, each frame of glass contains a minimalist image in three-dimensional space, each frame harmonising with its neighbour, collectively forming a final painting, which I hope gives the viewer a meditative and spiritual experience.
Kenneth J O’Hare
painting it again kept me aware of what I left behind, With every passing day, every new project or assignment is undertaken, my life in Liverpool grew to be as one instant and ecstatic; my relationship with space and my time in the city became compassionate, my pain dissipated and I grew more in touch with the people all around; their pain, often silently ignored, gave me a new direction. The universe was born from a single point, I believe we still exist within a relatively finite point in an infinite expense outside it.
