Yves O'Reilly, artist

Yves O'Reilly was born in 1955 in Montréal, Quebec, Canada.

As a visual artist whose conceptual approach to art is expressed through In Situ installations, he has been creating incense since 2000, exploiting its plasticity to make objects and interventions, to create pictures of impermanence in urban settings or in nature. He documents these events through photography.

Since the aroma cannot be seen, he attempts to reveal the spirit of the place it occupies. His photographic corpus contains the incense's discreet presence as it is consumed, the evolution and length of its evanescence, its interaction with the chosen environment to express life's moments, its subtle fragrance and body, its transition towards the invisible, carried and lifted by the winds in unique and unpredictable ways.
