Shannon O'Neill’s solo exhibition 'Life is life itself' consisted of a collection of paintings reflecting of her life at the time. This body of work encapsulates life’s highs and lows, capturing the beauty from the chaos that Shannon calls life.
The paintings are made up of many layers, patterns and colours, which come together to create a cohesive collection of paintings using acrylic on canvas. Her work combines the fluidity of abstraction and pattern with the opposing nature of more structured forms. Her background in design informs her strong compositions, but her expressive artistic side looks for chaos and the two come together in harmony.
