Conner O'Leary

Region: West

 Conner O’Leary’s paintings can best be described as uneasy still lifes or quiet chaos. The work typically takes place in liminal spaces flooded by light and shadows. Liminality comes from the Latin word limen, which means “threshold.” These thresholds feel familiar yet distant. Objects float, paintings hang inside paintings, and another dimension altogether is created. O’Leary’s paintings take stock of the melancholic mundanity and quiet tension that color our moments (or years) of seclusion and brings these into focus.
