We In Me
Artist: Matthew O’Reilly
RISE Emerging Artist Exhibition
This exhibition presents a dialogue between ‘our’-’selves’, asking: Is each person a collection of competing selves that want and need different things? RISE Emerging Artist Matthew O’Reilly applies this psycho-sociological framework in the making of his work, wherein he is always considering the collection of evolving identities within himself. Matthew aims to visualize this tension between the individual and the collective, leaning on the interaction of levity and the grotesque to push boundaries and invite inquisition.
