Dean De Landre
Dean De Landre is a painter interested in the intersection between nostalgia, popular culture and the natural world. Through appropriating found imagery, De Landre explores how we relate to nature through books, television, video games and other cultural ephemera. By removing this imagery from its original context, De Landre’s practice encourages us to experience images in a new-found way.
Dean has exhibited both interstate and overseas and has been a finalist in the Hornsby and Albany art prizes. He recently completed a residency through the LAB program at Platform Arts and has been selected for the 2021 iteration of the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art’s annual graduate show “Hatched”.
Dean currently lives in Torquay with his partner Solveig and his dog Pepper. He completed a double degree of Arts/Visual Arts at Monash University, Honours (First Class) in Creative Arts from Deakin University and is a current PHD candidate at Deakin University.
