There is a dignified sense of detachment to many of David O'Malley's compositions which often utilise minimalism and juxtaposition, a pure sense of wonder alternating with a cold nihilism oscillates...
The 'Painting Is Infinite' series takes its title from a David Lynch quote, when he stated that the restrictions of the film-making process do not apply to the field of painting and that indeed 'painting is infinite'. This series plays with the quote on a literal level; celebrating the mental faculty that enables man to be transported by Art, and how we choose to perceive ourselves within the universe as equal if not quite a part of it. Each work presents a platform for the contemplation of the universe by using a standard box canvas that has been subverted and redefined in order to function as a device through which to wonder at the mysteries and scale of the universe.
