New body of work by Tasmanian artist Sebastian Galloway. Galloway is a Hobart based painter who graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Tasmanian school of Art in Hobart in 2013 and has since exhibited numerous times including one major solo exhibition at Despard Gallery. His works often use narrative to create intriguing and often atmospheric scenarios between the animal world and humans. Known for his diverse use of colour and hyper detailed realism Sebastian extends our understanding of reality and truth.
Peter Prasil | Disparity
‘Two separate works of …. things so unlike that there is no basis for it comparison”
… one, handmade woodwork alluding to the Arts and Crafts Movement, while the other draws on techno mechanical aspects of 1930’s Modernism.’
