David Griggs: Between Nature and Sin
A new exhibition of painting, photography and film by leading Australia artist David Griggs is now on display at the Orange Regional Gallery.
The exhibition, Between Nature and Sin features a decade of past work, and the premiere of Cowboy Country, David Griggs’ first feature film.
Griggs’ work, predominantly portraiture, focuses on the human condition; drawing on political imagery, underground media, local histories and personal experience.
Famous for his bold approach, Griggs exposes the raw underbelly of society.
For the last 10 years he has resided in the Philippines and has created a significant body of work that reveals the social hierarchies and underground culture of his adopted home.
Between Nature and Sin was first presented at Campbelltown Arts Centre in 2017 and has toured nationally, visiting nine metropolitan and regional centres in New South Wales, the Northern Territory, Queensland and Victoria from 2018 to 2019.
The exhibition, like all at the Orange Regional Gallery is free to enter and will be on display until 29 September, 2019. It opens in conjunction with Raw Language: Esotericisim in Outsider Art (3 August – 8 September) and Curtain Call: Andrew Antoniou (3 August 22 September).
