NORMAN O’FLYNN – Timekeeper #79
Digital print on acrylic glass
40 x 40 cm
THREESOME GROUP SHOW
O’Flynn’s output has been dominated by the Timekeeper series, an ongoing series of larger-than-life, layered portraits on acrylic glass. The figures are for the most part covered in frenetic and portentous tattoo-like markings containing information and imagery culled from his milieu – glimpses of the news and current events, social media, conversation, fiction in print and film, music, poetry, binary code, the artist’s own imagination. A tribe of unshakable observers.
The mouths of the Timekeepers remain covered. This robs the them of their individuality and of their voice, and simultaneously sets them apart from the rest of their community that, according to the contextual body art, is hell-bent on consumption regardless of consequence. A lament of the all-pervasive contemporary cult of consumerism.
