Opening Thursday April 30- exhibition: "Fragments" in New York

"Fragments" An Exhibition of Paintings by Enda O’Donoghue at the Irish Arts Center in New York April 30-June 19| Gallery Open by Appointment Monday-Friday 10am-6pm

Enda O’Donoghue is known for his work in painting, photography, video, installation, public art and interactive media. His most recent paintings depict banal scenes of everyday life such as packed subway cars, travelers waiting at airport gates and fast food checkout counters. Rather than being based on live models, O’Donoghue’s subject matter is drawn from snapshots he finds on the Internet. The artist refers to the subjects of these works as “in-between” spaces, which are neither public nor private. The same could be said of his work, which is neither the original product of his imagination nor a direct copy. Using the ancient art form of painting to comment on contemporary phenomena, he challenges the viewer to think about the connections between fine art and technology as forms of self-expression. O’Donoghue has been living and working in Berlin since 2002.
