EXPLOSION/RESOLUTION: New work by Marley Dawson

Opening Reception: Tuesday, November 11

The Julio Fine Arts Gallery at Loyola University Maryland

Dawson, known for his kinetic sculpture and installation, is the mad-scientist/construction worker/mechanical engineer of the studio. In his art installations, things spin, or explode; he sets things on fire, and, as is the case with this exhibit, he shoots things.
Originally from Australia, Dawson received a Bachelor of Visual Arts (2004) and Master of Visual Arts (2008) from Sydney College of the Arts, Sydney, Australia. His work has been exhibited across Australia, in Asia and Europe and in Washington, DC, including exhibitions at HEMPHILL (Washington, DC, 2014), Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery (Sydney, Australia, 2013), Washington Project for the Arts (Washington, DC, 2013), Hillyer Art Space, (Washington, DC, 2013), Hamiltonian Gallery (Washington, DC, 2012), Museum of Old and New Art (Hobart, Australia, 2011), Para Site (Hong Kong, China, 2009), and Point Éphémère (Paris, France, 2006). In 2014, Dawson was a finalist in the Sondheim Artscape Prize in Baltimore.
