FELT space presents Palmaggedon; a collaborative exhibition by two prominent emerging artists; James Dodd and Dan Sibley.
Everything that palm trees encapsulate- resorts, the tropics, Ken Done- has been grafted to the artwork created by James Dodd and Dan Sibley. Prepare yourself for an art-slap in the face with a fistful of deck chairs, flouro sunsets and pointillist renderings of Club Med in Sportsgirl pastels, circa '83.
James Dodd is one of Adelaide's leading emerging artists working within both street, experimental and community based art projects. He has recently exhibited at the Project Space and Ryan Renshaw Gallery, Queensland and is represented by Grantpirrie Gallery, Sydney and Helen Gory Gallery, Melbourne.
Dan Sibley will be FELT space's first interstate artist to exhibit in the gallery (although, he is SA born and bred). Dan completed a BA in Fine Arts at RMIT in Melbourne and has gone on to various solo showings in Sydney, Melbourne and abroad. He is a part of the National Gallery of Victoria Art Collection and is currently exhibiting at Michael Koro Galleries.
