Cairns Art Gallery
Proximity and Perception
4 May – 1 July 2018
Proximity and Perception focuses on a major new work by Danie Mellor commissioned by the Cairns Art Gallery Foundation, and places it within the context of his recent art practice and ongoing engagement with his matrilineal Country of the North Queensland rainforest region, south of Cairns.
Proximity and Perception spans the last decade of Mellor’s artistic practice and brings together highly detailed drawings rendered in Mellor’s signature blue pastel, alongside recent photographic works.
