If you didn't make it to the James St Festival to see Dylan Quirk you really missed out.
Check out the interview with Dylan below. There's a lot of debate in the art industry at the moment in regards to whether the industry is favouring artists who are entertaining and interactive inorder to bring currency into the gallery. Dylan's work may seem superficial or just a bit of fun, but it's much more than that. He talks about wanting to take his art back to the action painters of Abstract Expressionism. And we see his work looking like the gestural aesthetics of Pollock. Rather than focusing on the finished product, Dylan focuses on the process of creation and that process as being the actual art work.
Check out the film, it's a really good insight into his work.
Thanks to Nine Lives for an amazing night last week.
