Desert Experiences : Rod Moss

1st - 29th Sep

WHEN : 1st – 29th Sep
WHERE : Fireworks Gallery

After graduating from a Masters of Art at Monash University, Rod moved to Alice Springs. His drawings and paintings are full of arresting imagery that offers viewers a closer look into Aboriginal daily life in the desert. Often perplexing but always engaging, Rod’s graphic works can appear both mundane and sardonic. Suggestive poses by the Aboriginal subjects simultaneously challenge both our knowledge and ignorance of Indigenous life, with Rod often wryly quoting famous masterworks from European painting history including those of Manet, Bellini and Caravaggio. Since 1984, Rod has won or been acquired for various awards in the Alice Springs region, including The Alice Prize, The Tennant Creek Prize and the Northern Territory Art Award. His works are held in a number of private, corporate and public collections nationally.
