DESCRIPTION

Robyn O'Neil's large-scale graphite drawings depict the insignificance of man and beast at the mercy of nature. Turbulent skies and sublime landscapes, adjoined with apocryphal titles, suggest a wrathful higher power. Two majestic horses stand poised and alert, yet a dark ominous cloud obscures their heads from view. Disconcertingly, the tamed animals pose in profile, appearing completely oblivious to the looming sense of apocalypse or the distant men falling from the sky. O'Neil's vast and desolate landscapes portray the world as a moralizing stage on which these creatures play. Surrounded by the large-scale, tumultuous landscapes, one feels uneasy and inconsequential.
