The elusive and mysterious landscapes are imagined by the artist with their scenes drawn from the artist’s memory and personal experience. Reilly depicts subjects that are eerily familiar yet alien to encapsulate a shared experience of our home, Australia.
Inspired by and referencing Angry Penguins artists such as Arthur Boyd and Sidney Nolan, Reilly evokes the awkward yet beautiful struggle between man and nature. You Beauty blurs the boundary between the surreal and the real, and the past and present, capturing the psyche of our ancient mysterious land.
“This great land of glory, tragedy and struggle lay at the foundation of what most of us call home”. – Dean Reilly
