Biography

Regan O’Callaghan is an artist who lives in London, England.

He moved from New Zealand to the United Kingdom in 1993 where he later studied religious studies and art including the technique of icon writing (painting).  He has painted a number of important commissions including an icon for Saint Paul’s Cathedral London.  Today Regan’s art practice has built on the  technique of icon writing combining contemporary themes with  traditional techniques. 

 

Artist Statement

The nature of my practice is based on the application of contemporary and traditional techniques and the morphing of different  religious themes and symbols in painting, installations and video.   All my work explores ideas of ritual, the sacred and profane with the intention of drawing the viewer into challenging realms of order and chaos, apophatic and cataphatic, light and dark.
