Chicago-based artist William J. O’Brien has a diverse discipline that includes painting, sculpture, drawing and installation. We are most drawn to his work of felt collages with its geometric shapes and repetitive patterns. The artist makes precise cut-outs that are then stitched against a neutral background showing an art form intricately expressed through material and process.
