Fallingwater in Oil

Eamon O’Kane’s oil painting of Americas most well known house. I have seen a lot of different interpretations of Fallingwater, this one really jumps.

It also seems the point of view is from a lower angle than the typical view of this side of the house with the waterfall.

From the acompanying text of the show:

In his first New York solo exhibition, entitled The Architect’s House, Eamon O’Kane presents new large-scale oil paintings that explore his fascination with architecture and landscape. Created during his residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris from April to June 2008, these works recombine elements of Modernist masterpieces and set them in idyllic landscapes to give voice to a contemporary utopian ideal.
