The Howling Unknown
A solo exhibition by Dord Burrough
5 – 14 July 2013
Opening & artist talk Thursday 4 July 6pm
LEVEL Project Space, Studio 3.12, 109 Edward Street Brisbane
Exhibition hours: 2-6pm Friday-Sunday
In conclusion to the LEVEL residency, Dord Burrough presents an exhibition The Howling Unknown, exploring our relationship with the natural world, non-physical realms and emotional paths. What does our retreat from nature mean for our humanness? How can access to the unconscious, through visionary plants and other spiritual technologies, reaffirm our original bond to the planet and straighten the distortions of our self-awareness? These notions are traversed in the processes of these oil paintings and sculptural works.
Since graduating with a BFA majoring in Painting from Queensland College of Art in 2008, Dord has exhibited in Australia and Germany including Test Pattern at Ryan Renshaw Gallery in 2012 and as a finalist in The Churchie Emerging Art Exhibition in 2011 and 2012.
