O’Carrigan’s practice is focused on the mindset of painting, but this painting is infused with elements of collage and traditional cel-animation. Whether actual or achieved through trompe l'oeil, the collage tradition is important for the layered approach O’Carrigan takes to the development of pictorial space.

His recent works take the existential void as their subject matter — though they are often tongue in cheek. They filter various suggestions (from the Western canon of philosophy) as to how one should best respond to the knowledge of existence’s absurdity.
