Inner-City at The Wilton Gallery 

“We were excited to provide Hazel first solo exhibition entitled Inner City, from 23 – 30 Aug post-graduation 2021. In this exhibition, O’Sullivan’s continued her interest in architectural space while raising questions about modernism.”

“A recent graduate from NCAD, in Fine Art Painting with Critical Cultures, Hazel is unafraid to experiment with different mediums; oil and wood stain on plywood – the quality of the grain forming a critical aspect of the composition of her work. Occasionally, she will use acrylic onto cardboard boxes, enhancing the illusions of perspective and depth central to her work.”

“Within this particular body of work, I started my process with an empty dollhouse. I occupied the space with meticulously positioned cardboard paintings, which offered a combination of different architectures…This dollhouse, titled ‘Inner-City’, acts as a maquette for this series of paintings.”
