One man’s art is Another Man’s Treasure


Dave Kill blends ceramic caricatures with found or discarded household objects with the aim of making a humorous statement about the absurdities of human actions in his exhibition Another Man’s Treasure.

In a world that faces grave and ever-increasing international challenges, Kill’s work critiques these issues in a highly amusing and compelling way.

Dave-Kill-Biggles'-Flies-UndoneKill is an artist who works to a moral, satirical and political agenda; who hopes his work will in some way challenge the status quo and contribute to greater community awareness concerning the issues he explores. Issues associated with an ever increasing population, an inequitable distribution of wealth, and a disparate inequity of power between the sexes form the subject to this latest body of work.

Kill suggests that from these three ills an entirety of problems, follies and disasters follows. However, despite each piece delving into a seriously dark place, the narratives are set so that the viewer can laugh at the folly hidden within and observe with the pretence that all is well in Camelot.

The exhibition open tonight at the Lismore TAFE at 6pm, then runs until November 29.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
