COOL HUNTING

Painter Dan Sibley

by Lost At E Minor in Culture on 30 April 2009

Painter Dan Sibley appropriates the Aboriginal technique of dot painting for his contemporary creations of idyllic luxury hotels and homes on fire, particularly resonant considering recent events in Victoria. The use of dots gives his work a computer-generated bent, while the bright colors are reminiscent of the pop culture art of the '60s and '70s and the absence of people in his fantasy images lends them an eerie, almost artificial feel.
