Dane Lovett: Nightshades - Art Collector

Courtesy the artist and Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney.

Nightshades continues Dane Lovett’s exploration into the still life genre, in a series of work that repetitively cite motifs from art history, as well as his own ouevre. Rendered in a strikingly restrictive palette of dark purple and warm blues, the series is unified by a seductive, yet inescapable feeling of twighlight. Produced using a subtractive method of painting, whereby areas of deep transparent colour is removed to reveal the purple base, each gesture revisits the subject matter with a sense of casual reminiscence.
