Multi-platform artist Daimon Downey has always had the impulse to create. Whether through sculpture, ceramics, music or painting, Downey possesses an innate gift for taking the big questions and contemplations that touch us all and channelling them into works that move and inspire audiences across the world. His latest exhibition, Shapes imagined from decisions made in solitude, features 70 works from the artist – spanning paint, sculpture and ceramics – all created throughout the last year in his Bondi Beach studio. Each piece continues Downey’s search for balance in colour and form. Bright tones in playful compositions offer an escape from the mundane, a window to a place where viewers can live and find pleasure without boundaries. Shapes imagined opens at Yellow House gallery, Potts Point, from November 9-11.
