Enda O’Donoghue Stunning Translations Of The Digital Aesthetic Into Paintings

Enda O’Donoghue is an Irish painter who has been living and working in Berlin since 2002. The source material for most of his work comes from found images and other media where he plays with seemingly random throwaway moments of everyday life. These are translated, reconfigured and merged together in various interconnected themes, blurring the lines between fact and fiction, evidence and invention. ‘The bulk of my work over the past few years has been using found images and photographs mostly sourced from the internet which are treated to very systematic translations into paintings. An ongoing interest for me has been in exploring the digital aesthetic, complete with pixelation, errors and glitches. This comes partly out of an interest in the hidden structure underlying digital images and partly from a love of the purely abstract qualities of this visual noise.’ – Enda O’Donoghue
