O’Connor’s paintings question a relentless form of wealth, where wonder, envy and discomfort can be felt simultaneously. Personal and uncomfortable realities about the breeding ground of excess we all play a part in upholding are unearthed whilst also inviting conversation surrounding class, which for her is necessary and long overdue.
Her interest in reflecting society continues through challenging the content we’re creating, how it's digested and what it says about us. The power it has to untether us from reality and skew our perception of our own lives and the lives of others. The paintings present a visual catalogue of wealth that shows no signs of retreating but becomes ever more disconnected from the lives of its outsiders.
