Donna O'Callaghan | Nitrogen Narcosis
24 January - 22 February 2020
Opening event 5.30pm Friday 24 Januaury | All welcome FREE
Nitrogen narcosis is an immersive experience inspired by scuba diving, where visitors are invited to touch ocean based artworks, see and hear what its like to scuba dive without getting wet. They can feel the joy, calm and tranquility felt when scuba diving. This feeling is reflected in the artwork.
Donna O'Callaghan is an emerging fine artist from Gippsland in country Victoria. Her work features textural abstracts, minimalist compositions and more recently, increasingly complex colour palettes using acrylics and mixed media on canvas, canvas paper and board.
“I create ocean based artworks which incorporate corals, coral spawn, and the ocean which promote a conversation surrounding conservation. I love diving, and incorporate the feeling I get when I'm diving in my artwork. It's a wonderful feeling when I start a new artwork.”
