Lives and Works in Washington State
ROBYN O’NEIL (b. 1977) creates works on paper whose monumental narratives straddle the line between comedy and tragedy. Her extensive oeuvre excavates memories and art historical references to populate large-scale graphite landscapes. In late 2019, O’Neil was honored with a mid-career retrospective, WE, THE MASSES, at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Her solo exhibitions include the Des Moines Center of Art; the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; and the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA), Winston-Salem. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Dallas Museum of Art; Menil Collection, Houston; Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts; Philadelphia Museum of Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC, among others.
