Daniel Boyd Biography

Daniel Boyd was born in Cairns in 1982, and has been exhibiting his work nationally and internationally since 2005. His identification with the Kudjla/Gangalu peoples has come to inform his work which considers Eurocentric perspectives on Australian history and the ethics of colonisation. His work exposes themes of inheritance and explore the effects of memory and time on the interpretation of images. He frequently uses pastels in a reduced palette of predominantly black, white, and grey, to create scenes made out of lots of small dots on a canvas. The reduced, monochromatic palette alludes to the sadness of events in the past and the personal implications of these events on Boyd, in the present.
