Painting, Booth 823
Born in Ottawa, Eryn O’Neill holds a BFA from NSCAD University, and an MFA from the University of Waterloo. Eryn’s paintings study an urban space in transition through the perspective of a runner. The paintings are the product of months of repetitive outings, in all conditions, to gather enough information, visually and mentally, to create sensory charged paintings suggestive of a figure navigating an urban environment. Eryn has attended the Vermont Studio Centre in 2016 and the Golden Foundation Artist in Residence in March 2019. Eryn is a multiple Ontario Arts Council Grant recipient, and a recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Award.She is a returning exhibitor to The Artist Project. She currently works and lives in Ottawa.
