Terence Donnellan (b. New York)
First and foremost my paintings are about words and the beauty of language. But beauty isn't simply the construction of pretty or well-crafted sentences. The beauty is in each writer's truthful expression of some aspect of the human condition.
We are defined, and we define the world, by the words we speak, the words we read, the words we write. The better our grasp on language the better we are able to understand the world and our place in it. Of course, the opposite is true as well.
My text-based paintings have been exhibited in various venues in New York. I write, direct, and produce, my own show for NET TV in Brooklyn, NY. My short films for Artwork on Video are about contemporary visual artists. I have also written the literary novel, A Tincture of Madness, which is about the fine line between genius and madness. I am currently in preproduction for my first feature film, Damaged People, which I wrote and will direct.
Terence Donnellan is offering a variety of originals and fine art prints for sale in the ArtSlant Salesroom (here).
