Contemporary artist Dale Cox works across a diverse range of visual media including film, painting and sculpture, often appropriating found objects as materials for alteration and reinvention.

Challenging conventional notions of painting – Cox enjoys blurring the boundaries of his painting practice into hybridized painted sculptural works, documentaries, video art and film. Cox’s sculptures explore issues concerning changing perceptions towards Australian history, including the commodification of the Australian landscape among broader environmental themes.

Paintings of bushfires address issues of climate, the precarious imbalance of man altered environments, and the ancient rhythms of the Australian landscape. Other works explore history and fractured contextual timelines, cultural hybridisation, religion and globalisation, subverting the prevailing narratives of post-colonial Australian history.

Carbon Arts is partnering with Dale Cox to deliver the Castlemaine Currency Project in 2022.
