One man’s art is Another Man’s Treasure

Dave-Kill-The-Importance-of-Being-(Not-So)-Ernest

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.
