CHARLES THOMAS O'NEIL BIOGRAPHY
Born in New York City in 1966, O’Neil worked in the 1980’s as a studio assistant for the painter David Novros, whose Minimalist explorations of painting as object clearly left an enduring mark on his imagination.
Through the process of addition and subtraction O’Neil lays bares the intuitive search for color, proportion, and emotional gestalt that happens in the painter’s studio. He achieves an aged and ethereal effect, employing light to highlight different aspects of the buffed and painted surfaces.
Charles Thomas O’Neil was most recently featured in a solo exhibition at Howard Scott Gallery in New York City 2017. His work is featured in numerous private and public collections nationally and internationally, including the Hallmark Art Collection, Kansas City, MO, Time Warner Collection, New York, Smith Barney Collection, New York, NY, Altana, Wesel, Germany and the Portland Museum of Art, ME.
