Forking in the River of Time – Dane Lovett

Dane Lovett – Calder and Cover, 2012, acrylic on canvas, 214 x 153 cm.

OK so 2 weeks ago I popped over to Kirra Jamison‘s house to return her clothes, after I stole them for our recent ‘My Melbourne Wardrobe‘ series.  As you might recall, Kirra Jamison’s house is also Dane Lovett‘s house, and they each have a studio at home too.

ANYWAY, to cut a long story short, my timing was extremely fortuitous because Dane had JUST FINISHED the most incredible series of new paintings, which were just about to leave to go to Sydney for his brand new show, Forking in the River of Time at Sullivan + Strumpf, opening this week.

I am SO glad I got a sneaky peek at these works before they left Melbourne, because I am telling you people, they are SEVERELY AMAZING.

It is so so sad to squish them to 520 pixels wide here, because in the real world they tower over Dane himself (and he is a tall man) – each canvas is over two metres tall.  Yes indeed.  They are MASSIVE and PASTEL COLOURED and PHOTO REALISTIC and BRILLIANT.

And if there are any left and you have a cool $10k lying around you should totally buy one. For me.

(For the record, there are smaller works there too but typically I have fallen hardest for the biggest and most expensive ones.)
