TID - Flowers and Still Life, Who Expected It, circa 1990s

Mixed media on canvas
213.4 cm x 152.4 cm
Presented by Jenkins Johnson Gallery



This painting is simultaneously abstract and representative in a way only Mary Lovelace O’Neal could achieve. In this 'still life,' I see both an ode to and challenge of art history.
