Home is pleased to be exhibiting work by Sydney based artist Chris Dolman in our ‘The Portrait’ exhibition opening in late August.
“…Chris Dolman makes paintings and objects imbued with incongruent and self-deprecating humour. Drawing from personal experience, art history and popular culture, his work often hovers between existentially driven narrative and slapstick one-liner. Dolman’s areas of interest include failure doubt and anxiety, pathos,loneliness and loss, all of which he explores through his practice with an equal mix of sincerity and irony…”
Dolman was the recipient of the Wallara Travelling Scholarship (2009), awarded the 2017 Art Gallery of NSW Dyason Bequest, ArtStart and New Work from the Australia Council for the Arts and Artist Support from Arts NSW. Dolman has undertaken international residencies at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Villa Belleville Paris, and Frans Masereel Centrum, Belgium.
National residencies include: Hill End, Bundanon Trust, BigCi NSW, Ceramic Design Studio, Parramatta Artists Studios, and Artspace Sydney.
