Dean has found his flow since calling Darwin home. Originally from Sydney, in 2008 Dean found sanctuary as a qualified professional tattoo artist at Darwin City tattoos.
Whilst perfecting his tattoo art, Dean has slowly practiced his expressionistic acrylic painting from home. Dean has now readied a series of paintings for his first exhibition. You can see primitive and slightly dark themes addressed with a glimpse of light that one can desperately be clinging onto.
Frances studied an Associate Diploma in Fine Art in Sydney in 1990, she has lived and worked in darwin for the past 5 years. The works in this exhibition were developed whilst landscaping in various locations around the Top End.
In experiencing the heat, toil and often harsh conditions, the landscape assumes a soulful quality, quiet and still, with an ancient mysticism.
5 – 27 April
Returning for the second edition at DVAA, Sentenced Zine will feature 22 artists from Darwin, Sydney and Melbourne.
The Zine takes inspiration from Exquisite Corpse a turn of the century game made famous by the surrealists in which participants are asked to in turn, write a sentence then obscure it, leaving a lead-in for the next player. Created by david Wickens and Coco Meacham, the artists selected for the edition have been asked to create a visual realm based on the sentences provided, resulting in an aesthetically rich and uncanny alternative universe.
David Wickens and Coco Meacham Heat, hunger, red dust and the confined space of a vintage vehicle can drive the mind to distraction. David and Coco have unpacked their suitcases, set up studio and translated their travels into an assortment of works that create a unique story of their time on the road.
