Between 1999 - 2009 the house of o’dwyer produced a different series of paintings each year. This incuded:

The Truffle Series / 2008

Hanged Man Series / 2007 

Tape Painting Series / 2006

Each series has been borne from an exploration of ideas around the activity of painting. They constituted an on-going interrogation and desire to discover what painting is.

 

Llinking all the work created by the house of o'dwyer is the self-consciousexamination of the practice and consumption of Art.

 

What is painting? What is it for? An object of contemplation? Representation of external reality? Decoration? Internal reality? Status symbol? Graphic design? Entertainment?...

 

The oldest portraits discovered are more than 14,000 years old. These engravings on stone slabs were found at La Marche, Vienne, France.

 

The portrait subjects are friends, family, artists and other performers.
