Sydney artist Patrick Dagg explores the fragility of the human form in his latest solo exhibition.
January 24th, 2012
Crash Paintings is an exhibition of the latest work by Sydney-based artist Patrick Dagg, a combination of paintings and hand painted ceramics that complement each other with their movement and energy.
“Crash Paintings is a collection of work created in response to a serious car accident I had recently,” says Dagg. “It has been 3 years since my last show and the accident gave me the inspiration for this new direction.”
Dagg’s perspective on life and approach to his work is informed by working with people with disabilities.
“Every day I work with people with acquired brain injuries and I consider myself very lucky I wasn’t seriously hurt in the accident,” he explains.
“As a society we often take our health for granted and we should celebrate what we have more often. The crash has kind of opened me back up and given me the courage to paint freely again.”
Crash Paintings is on at Ground Floor, 583 Elizabeth Street, Redfern from Friday 10 to Saturday 11 February.
Saturday 11am-5pm or by appointment
