Views Her Work as a Catalyst, a Doorway to Inner Space

Our place in the shape of things, the same patterns recurring in all the diverse levels of seeing something, from the lines in our hands, to the satellite photograph, and in between, the warm colours of the desert and the patterns on stone. Earth materials in the texture of paint, echoes of the inner landscape, the richness in the detail…I see my works as a catalyst, a doorway to inner space.” – Teresa O’ Connor
