Caley O’Dwyer

My artwork comes from many different interests but I am particularly drawn to expressions of human connection and renderings that inspire a sense of leisure, calm, beauty and humor. As a viewer and as a creator, I come to art for a kind of antidote to the stressors of contemporary high-speed, high-stress society. Sometimes the antidote is confrontation and sometimes it’s escape. I’m interested in connections between knowledge/language and human tenderness/goodwill and my work is informed by my life as a poet, psychotherapist, and creative writing teacher. I love color, lines, shape, and intersections between digital and handmade art. My paintings often start from photographs or digital work that is then rendered in oil or acrylic or both, and pieces started on canvas are frequently figured digitally and reworked, in a process of back and forth between the digital and the real.
