The Warburton Gallery is pleased to present The Heart is a Prideful Beast, an exhibition of new work by Daniel Domig.
Having studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Daniel Domig has exhibited widely over the past decade in both Europe and North America. This is his first UK show.
The exhibition here at the Warburton is dominated by a huge sculptural installation which squats like Gargantua, brash and unapologetic in lurid yellow rough-cut timber, disrupting and transforming the gallery space.
Often seen as an artist of mental states, Daniel Domig is nonetheless drawn back time and again to fractured forms of the body. Hovering somewhere between dream and nightmare, his works never seek to execute a preconceived plan but are the engagement between an artistic act and an inward journey. They are works whose being is their becoming, works which, to borrow a phrase from Aeschylus, ‘suffer into truth’.
