Aidan Dunne reviews Breon O'Casey in The Irish Times

Breon O’Casey’s painting and sculpture at the Peppercanister Gallery make for an enormously enjoyable exhibition. His rhythmic, pared down, abstracted compositions are notable for their judicious though bold use of colour. He likes to set a cluster of earth hues alight with a vivid blast of red or yellow.

His stylised bronzes, while they stick to a figurative language, have the same quality of stubbornness about them as the paintings, and combine a refined design sense with a willingness to just for the image in the most direct, unaffected manner possible.
