He began painting in earnest while convalescing from tuberculosis and finally in 1951 began exhibiting his work. In an interview O'Malley explained his painting thus: "Not so much abstract as essence. I could not paint for the sake of the pigment of whatever, but I like abstract form in the painting which instills it with meaning and power. Abstraction does enable you to get under the surface, to get beyond appearance, and to express the mind. But abstraction for its own sake does not interest me." 24 reproductions of O'Malley's works.
