About The Artwork

This painting was inspired by the contemporary architecture of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore. I was particularly interested in its geometric form. Looking up from below, I captured a close-up view of one of the vertical forms directly underneath the curved boat shaped form. What intrigued me about the boat-like structure, was not only its curved shape, but its structural ribbing. I used spray techniques to apply an acrylic underpainting. This was followed by masking over the underpainting and applying further transparent coats of acrylic. I decided to use orange-yellow colours merging down to deep blue-purple to maximize the depth of the geometric abstract forms.

Dean O’Callaghan is a professional visual artist with over 30 years’ experience. His abstractions have conceptually evolved from his interest in modern and contemporary architecture, and rural landscapes. From the beginning of 2021, his paintings show an intriguing interaction of shape, colour and line that evokes a sense of depth. In 2022, his work has become less hard-edge and by using various spray and layering techniques, he has developed paintings with smooth tonal and colour transitions. “Although my abstractions are inspired by what I see and experience, I invite the viewer to relate my work to their own thoughts and experiences”. Dean is a graduate of Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia where he studied fine arts and education. He has lectured at various academic institutions while maintaining a professional studio space and exhibiting frequently in mixed and solo exhibitions. Dean's work is represented in: Private collections throughout Australia and in the United States. Greening Australia Western Australian Government public art collection.
