art practice

works in progress

 

Chris Carmody is an Australian artist, originally from Canberra, currently living and working in Central Australia. His art practice involves drawing, painting, photography, collage and installation. 

My works are born of the tension between the designed purpose of various found materials and the inconclusive meaning worn and faded into these materials through their life as objects. This meaning is teased out through the process of painting and assemblage - wherein materials and visual experience are transformed into the so-called ‘durable object’.
