One of Twelve Silk Scarf - Untitled by Derek O'Connor
Derek O'Connor is a highly respected, talented Australia artists. The print on this scarf is reflective of his thick oil paintings, containing the signature pallet knife strokes prevalent in much of his work. There is a wonderful video interview made by the NGV of him painting and discussing his work. In it he illustrate his interesting technique - highly recommend watching it on Youtube.
The brilliant brushwork, complex layering and rich colours used by the artist somehow call to mind fragments of landscape. Yet whether this landscape is within nature — the deep recesses of the earth and its tectonic movements — or within the depths of the mind is open to question. Derek is known for creating abstract works that evoke the senses and varying associations, and the swirling colours and textures of this image help to show us why.
