Oregon Art Beat

Painter Alison O'Donoghue

Video duration: 8:27Video has closed captioning.

Alison O'Donoghue's playful, often amusing paintings look like folk art. And like a lot of folk art from across the world, her images are convivial takes on very real issues - loss, healing and the process of aging. Alison is creating a framework to confront and tap into deeper psychological streams of consciousness. The wry, seemingly innocent scenarios that emerge are surprising and engaging.
