  • About the work

"Ends Meat" is an original piece by Luke O'Sullivan made from wood that the artist has silkscreen printed onto with his original drawings and patterns, which he then cut and assembled into a three-dimensional, wall-hanging sculpture with additional wire details. The finished piece measures 46”h x 26”w x 9.5”d. 

O’Sullivan creates invented buildings, places, and objects describing unexplored worlds conjuring a sense of discovery and adventure. Rise and Shine represents a shift from the artist’s earlier work featuring structures, facades, and panoramic landscapes toward a more detailed approach. These new works depict encapsulated, floating environments devoid of humans. The sculptural objects are keepsakes or relics from these faraway places. Each piece plays with the shifting relationships between two and three dimensions, surface and underworld. O’Sullivan’s recent screen prints introduce color, imbuing these works with a certain levity and illustrative quality.

The playful nature of O’Sullivan’s work draws from Nintendo games, maps, science fiction movies, and movie set design. Likening his process to a lego set, the artist employs screen printed drawings in order to assemble two- and three-dimensional works that depict cities, labyrinths, and fantastical objects that embrace themes of exploration and adventure. Each drawing and sculpture contributes to an ongoing catalogue of a strange and invented world.
