Irish Meetup: Daniel O’Sullivan’s “Ireland through Dreamlike Eyes” Presentation


We were happy to welcome two New York City Meetup groups to our NYDC showroom. The Irish in New York and The Irish / British Genealogy Groups convened last Thursday, June 11th, to hear Dublin artist, Daniel O’Sullivan talk about his “Ireland” series of paintings.

transFORM Art Gallery Director, Kara O’Neill and Daniel O’Sullivan lead the discussion on Ireland’s past, present and future. While enjoying wine and light refreshments, the attentive audience asked interesting questions and added to the commentary.

Speaking of his experiences, Daniel’s art captures both the tradition and uniqueness of Irish culture, subtleties often lost to the tourist or non-Irish Native.

A special thank you to all the guests in attendance for making this Meetup so enjoyable.

Here’s feedback from our guests:

DanielOsullivan-headshot

Born in Ireland, Daniel O’Sullivan is an entrepreneur and artist now living in the United States. Dan’s experiences growing up in the Emerald Isle provided hazy memories for a dreamlike accounting of how this beautiful land looked not so long ago.

“Indeed, some parts of Ireland still retain this mystical, mythical character to this day. The Celtic tiger did not diminish the natural beauty of the entire country, thank God.”

There are a total of 14 paintings in the series and each one represents an actual experience of the artist’s travels through Ireland as a child and as a young adult. Each painting is meticulously hand painted on stretched canvas using the highest quality oil based paint available.

Each painting also tells it’s own story and, when viewed together, all of the paintings combined paint a bigger picture of this small yet wonderful land.  It is the hope of the artist that the paintings bring to mind a sense that one’s life need not be complicated in order to be a life well lived.
