Katrina O’Brien’s striking works of ink, acrylic and graphite sway between painting and drawing. Indeed, Katrina sees her artwork as a kind of dance, and a way of delving into her own and others’ inner psyche.

Says Katrina: “As this work evolved, a story came to me – in pieces, but it came to me nonetheless. There are parts of this story strewn throughout some other works too. The story doesn’t really have a start or finish, it’s just following its own path.”


An excerpt from the story written about this work: “The woman held out her arm, and in her hand a piece of fruit she offered to him. The fruit turned into words, then exploded into colour. It turned into a diamond in his hand.”
