Critics' and Experts' Comments

“Thoughtfully conceived and executed. Well done, Barbara”
- Scott (Pothan), Director, Whangarei Art Museum.
"O'Sullivan's paintings bear the unmistakable gestural concerns established by Jackson Pollock in the fifties although the direct link is via the New Zealand expressionist Philippa Blair. In works like Frangipani, a balance has been achieved. There is a rhythmic unification of the entire surface without one part being of greater or lesser significance than the others. A balance has also been struck between the forces of chaos and order."
- Art critic Geoff Harris, Northern Advocate, October 2, 2002.
“Barbara O’Sullivan displays fine abstract painting skills, a strong body of work already accomplished (evident in her catalogue) and an impressive sense of direction”.
- Art critic Laurence Clark, Northern Advocate, March 6, 2008.

“I was attracted to the painting’s air of mystery and the way you conveyed the variety of vegetation of this massive hill. A simple subject but is full of complexity and interest”
