Withey Or Withoutey - A Dan Withey Solo Show

Home > Adelaide > Art | Exhibitions | Free | Galleries
Event: -
Get some local art into ya
Local talent, well we'll claim him as a local as he came from England 6 years ago and completed his studies here, Dan Withey is launching his new solo show at Magazine Gallery on Friday the 7th of December.

He says of the exhibition: 'Withey or Withoutey is an exhibition that explores what we have, what we want and what we unknowingly sacrifice to fulfill our desires.'

He believes we have let go of some of what should be our natural attachment to nature and have instead become driven by the desire to obtain material possessions that ultimately leave us unfulfilled and 'missing' something.

His work demonstrates the idea of these missing pieces literally, rather than figuratively as something missing from our soul. Instead of being something that we can't see, his works make these missing pieces tangible (think holes, scars and severed limbs), and this really brings his motivations to the forefront. Sometimes this results in slightly icky images, to use an extremely sophisticated word to describe these depictions.

Despite the occasionally disturbing images, he believes that 'his characters are friendly not menacing, the colours are bright and light and the viewer is left feeling enlightened.'

The show is being launched on Friday 7th December and it runs until December 22nd. Open hours Mon - Fri 10am - 7pm. Sat 10am - 4pm. So head on down and support the local arts scene.
