Christopher Dolman

Christopher Dolman

Art Forms: Ceramics, Film/Video, Music/Sound, Printmaking

Residency Years: 2013, 2015

Lives / Works: Australia

Christopher Dolman uses the formalist tropes of modernism with incongruent and self-deprecating humour. Moving across painting, printmaking, ceramics and video, and drawing on influences of art history, cartoons and comic strips, Dolman employs nontraditional self-portraiture, still life and interior motifs to present absurd psychological narratives. Inside his tragicomic world lurk ideas of personal failure, superstitions, anxiety and loss, but also of perseverance, understanding and hope.

IN RESIDENCE 2015

During their residency at Bundanon, Dolman and Paul Williams worked on creating a series of new works for two major upcoming exhibitions; a group ceramic exhibition ‘Glazed and Confused, Ceramics in contemporary art practice’ at Hazelhurst Regional Art Gallery (2015) and a collaborative project at Wollongong City Art Gallery (2016).

Dolman was also in residence at Bundanon in 2013.
