Oliver Osborne’s paintings bring together elements of abstraction, figuration and appropriation. Silk-screens of appropriated cartoons, large multi-panelled monochrome canvases, embroidery and precisely executed, photorealistic paintings are all part of his repertoire. By using this broad visual language he attempts to push against the traditional separation between abstraction and figuration, and understand what potential the act of painting still holds within contemporary art.
