ST. O’DONNELL’S SELECT GALLERY PROFILE: JAMES DICK
After a successful debut at our Select Gallery #002, we asked James Dick to come back for the 3rd exhibition.
We had a candid chat to James about what inspires him, what he can’t live without and what to expect from him at Select Gallery #003.
Who is James Dick?
I’m not even sure that I know that answer to that one, still figuring it out on a daily basis. I guess more or less some kooky kid from the coast trying to create some cool stuff for people to look at.
Name three artists you’d like to be compared to.
I wouldn’t even think of being on a platform of being compared to them but I love anything intricate like works by Vernon Ah Kee, Aaron Earley and even some more expressionistic works like paintings by Jack Vanzet.
What wouldn’t you do without?
Probably coffee and music, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to speak to anyone before 10am.
What’s your favourite art work?
A series of photographs by Jiang Zhi of flowers being set alight. If you haven’t seen them go and check them out and read the story behind his concept. Absolutely unreal.
How would you describe your artistic style?
Very minimal but also layered, and I often like to use a lot of smaller elements on a bigger scale.
What can we expect from you at the Select Gallery?
Lots of pen lines! And boogying.
James Dick will be among a select group of artists, musicians and fashion designers at St. O’Donnell’s Select Gallery #003.
St. O’Donnell’s Select Gallery will be a curated exhibition held in one of Sydney’s iconic cathedrals on the 16th of December.
