Scope and content

Brien O'Rourke was a Morris Dancer under squire Arnold Woodley for many years and the colours in one of his paintings are those of the ribbons and colours worn by the Woodley Morris side. His paintings depicting the different seasons show a detailed observation from the large to the small aspects. His studio was at his home in Faringdon.
His exhibition in the Gallery covers his 'seasons' work and much more, showing a wide variety in how he uses colour and the paint itself.
