Danie Mellor Biography

Art, for Danie Mellor, is a reflective medium that mirrors not only the personal values, attitudes and beliefs of its creator, but also the society from which it comes. His work speaks both of his sense of his own ancestry and the diversity of the cultural milieu from which it emerges.

Across a variety of forms, from printmaking and drawing to sculpture and installation, Mellor addresses the fact of Australia's shared history, often through the lens provided by his spiritual connection with his mother's country in the Atherton Tablelands of North Queensland. Quietly exploring the way in which the imposition of colonial settlement has transformed Australia's landscape and its people, Mellor's work provokes the viewer through its restrained frission - inviting us to delight in its charm, while challenging us to acknowledge the process of its evolution.

Mellor divides his time between his Canberra studio and Sydney, where he lectures in Art Theory at Sydney College of the Arts, having completed an MA (Fine Art) at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, UK, and a PhD from the National Institute of the Arts, ANU. Numerous awards and commissions over the past decade are testament to the increasing critical acclaim for this artist's varied oeuvre.

His work is held in prestigious collections across Australia - including the National Gallery of Australia, State, Regional and University collections, and many private collections.
