By Mirko Sossai and by Damien Martin.
Recent drawings and paintings by Mirko Sossai and by Damien Martin. will be exhibited, of parallel themes, and a compatible artistic voice. The artists studied together at West Wollongong TAFE, and through chance encounters over the last 15 years have engaged in a music project, this art exhibition and a friendship of respect.
Mirko Sossai’s artworks express subconscious issues as they arise, are reflective and energetic, and the language of expression is transmitted in text and colour. Layers are continually added.
Damien Martin’s artworks are representative of mental and emotional states and their significance in terms of an aesthetic approach to experience. As much as a visual experience is hoped for realisation, resonances of other kinds are also hoped for.
Music is central for both artists in the creative process.
