Susan Inglett Gallery presents new work by Robyn O’Neil, from 12 September to 18 October.
A reception for the artist will be held Friday evening 12 September, from 6 to 8 PM.
I BURNED WAVES lyrically circumscribes the essence of Robyn O’Neil’s recent drawings. Inspired by the power of weather and vista, the artist resolutely sets aside the figure to focus on the beauty of the landscape, the sublime. All seventeen drawings are rendered on a small intimate scale, yet the untamed power of nature continues as the dominant theme.
As intimated in the title of the exhibition, O’Neil conjures a place still in dramatic formation, witnessed in different or even parallel stages of becoming. Less concerned with narrative, the artist’s interest lies in capturing a sense of mystery inspired by the natural world. O’Neil builds up turbulent grounds from powdered graphite smudged and then partially erased before layering on oil pastel. This technique creates depth and a delicate play of luminosity and tactility while managing to convey darkened psychological states. Where her large-scale works demanded patient endurance on the part of the artist, these smaller compositions demand not so much stamina as mastery of materials.
As Beth Taylor writes in her catalogue essay, stylistically “O’Neil’s new work brings to mind the landscapes of American modernists Milton Avery and Arthur Dove. Like Avery, O’Neil’s recent work embodies an imaginative use of drawing and color that convey a more personal interpretation of landscape. The new drawings also relate to the moody atmospheres found in Albert Pinkham Ryder’s allegorical paintings, filled with dream-like land and seascapes illuminated by strange light cast through mystical clouds. Even with these affinities, O’Neil has unleashed a raw world all her own, captured frame by frame in formation and filled with a sense of excitement and possibility.”
Robyn O’Neil’s work has been included in numerous exhibitions both in the US and internationally, including the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; American University Museum, Washington, DC; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tampa as well as solo museum exhibitions at the Des Moines Art Center; The Contemporary Art Museum, Houston; The Frye Art Museum, Seattle; and the Johnson Museum at Cornell. Her work was included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial. O’Neil is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including an Irish Film Board Award for "WE, THE MASSES."
The Gallery will publish a catalogue with original writing by the artist and essay by Beth Taylor.
The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM. For additional information please contact Susan Inglett Gallery at 212/647- 9111, fax 212/647-9333 or firstname.lastname@example.org

To place a bid, enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Artspace will accept a bid at the next increment, and save any excess amount as a maximum bid. If you are outbid, we will continue bid on your behalf up to your maximum bid.
Bidding increments increase at the following intervals:
You will receive an email confirmation of your bid and when you are outbid.
If you are the winning bidder, you will be contacted 48 hours after of the close of the auction.
Every bid submitted is treated as a maximum bid. You should always bid the maximum you are willing to spend for a work, though this does not necessarily mean you will pay that price. As the auction unfolds, we will increase your bid by increments to ensure you remain the highest bidder. If the winning amount is less than your maximum bid, you will pay the current increment. If your maximum bid no longer exceeds the current bid, you will receive an outbid notification email, and have the option to bid again.
In the case of multiple bidders placing the same maximum bid, the first person to place the maximum amount takes precedence as the highest bid until another bidder exceeds the maximum amount.
For Artspace Auctions winning bidders are charged a 15% Buyer's Premium on top of the hammer price. For Artspace Benefit Auctions, Buyer's Premiums are not applied. If they are, this will be clearly noted. Purchases made from all auctions, including benefit auctions, are subject to sales tax.
Winning bidders will be contacted within 48 hours to arrange shipping and to provide final price including commission, shipping, and taxes and duties when applicable. Promotion codes cannot be applied to auction works.
All our frames are manufactured in the USA, using eco-friendly & sustainably sourced engineered hardwood for durability and a uniform finish that is free of defects. Frames are available in Black or White Satin and Honey Pecan.
All prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Alpha Cellulose matboard, using an acid-free linen tape. The mat's surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conservation quality foam-core mounting board that will keep the work safe from deterioration over time. Artworks with a deckled or decorative edges will be floated on the matboard, with acrylic spacers to separate the art from the glazing. All mounting is fully reversible, without any potential damage to the art.
All of our frames come with picture quality .090 mm plexiglass, which blocks 66% of UV to prevent color fading from exposure to light, keeping your art protected for years to come. It is now considered the industry standard for artists, museums and galleries throughout the world.
