Johnnie Dady, James Dodd, Rohan Fraser & Glenn Kestell
Adelaide Central School of Art
September 21 to October 25, 2013
Each one of these artists works in a distinct and different discipline, from painting to sculpture. In their works, the artists explore identity, rebellion and dystopias. Johnnie Dady’s works suggest the performance inherent in making. His sculptures and drawings require travel both in their creation as well as viewing. James
Dodd’s paintings of holes in chain link fences allude to transgressions across boundaries but also imply portals through which defiance might flow. The paintings by Rohan Fraser draw upon mythology,nostalgia and the detritus of his subconscious to become disaster-pieces. Glenn Kestell deals with identity in his practise, in particular the societal idea that material wealth is conducive to a male’s success.
