JOHL DWYER. MILKSHAKE. 16 July - 7 August 2010

Refuting addictive labour and possession by novelty in contemporary painting, Johl Dwyer’s practice breaks down its auto- and mono-graphic voices through his re-working of others’ failed and dismissed works into rehabilitated and promptly executed collages.

Dwyer edits his work as he proceeds, negotiating the prearranged formal attributes of the found works, but what gets kicked over pretty much stays there.

He graduated with a BFA from Elam in 2006 and recent exhibitions include 'Yesser' at A Center for Art and 'Fruit Loop Box' at The High Seas in Auckland.
