Early Life and Education[edit]

Career and Work[edit]

Robyn O'Neil Masses and masses rove a darkened pool; never is there laughter on this boat of fools, 2007, graphite on paper. Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City.

O’Neil is known for her large-scale intricately detailed narrative drawings. Early work bore the clear influence of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel, complex scenerios populated by dozens of sweat-suited men performing ritualized tasks to no discernable end. In his review of an exhibition at Bodybuilder and Sportsman for Artforum, James Yood stated, “O’Neil’s project is to evoke a place where the normal rules of behavior don’t apply, where stark nature is accompanied by stark humankind” [1] . Her titles are equally poetic and mysterious, reinforcing the narrative and spiritual qualities of her work. Comparing O’Neil’s detailed work to that of a Renaissance alter, Alison de Lima Greene writes, “And as much as Fra Angelico or Giovanni di Paolo chose scenes from the lives of the saints to illuminate moral choice and sacred belief, O’Neil addresses the human condition” [2].

O'Neil shows at Susan Inglett Gallery[3] in New York, Talley Dunn Gallery in Dallas, Western Exhibitions in Chicago. She has had solo exhibitions at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem; the Des Moines Art Center, and the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, which traveled to the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University, Ithaca and Frye Art Museum, Seattle. Her work was included in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s 2004 Whitney Biennial, an exhibition celebrating Henry Darger's influence on contemporary art entitled Dargerism at the American Folk Art Museum. O'Neil has been included in numerous acclaimed museum and gallery exhibitions both domestically and internationally. She received a grant from the Irish Film Board for a film written and art directed by her entitled “WE, THE MASSES” which was conceived at Werner Herzog’s Rogue Film School. O'Neil was featured with author John Green on PBS Digital Studios The Art Assignment in 2014. A recent monograph of the work Robyn O’Neil: 20 Years of Drawings was published by Archon Projects in 2017.
