I don’t pretend to understand the work of David O’Reilly. Maybe the best way to think of his intentionally crude visual style and warped narratives are as the cultural bleed-off of the Information Age. His new series, Please Say Something, centers on a cat and mouse couple that struggle against the banalities of everyday life in the city. It’s strange and glitchy and a little morose. And I like it.
