About the Artist
Eamon O’Kane utilizes the imagery of Modernism in both his installations and two-dimensional works as a jumping off point to explore man’s noble attempts to educate himself and to develop a harmonious relationship with his environment. His Fröbel-inspired installations pay homage to Friedrich Fröbel, the inventor of Kindergarten, and those Modernist artists, architects, and designers so influenced by his teachings. In his paintings, Modernism becomes the thread by which Eamon explores the double-edged sword of human achievement – the effort to achieve utopia through artistic pursuits and the inevitability of the failure to reach that exalted state of existence. Eamon has over 50 solo shows and numerous group shows, publications, and awards/residencies to his credit.
