Julian Dashper, John Nixon & Jan van der Ploeg in The Smoothing of Things, Two Rooms, Auckland, New Zealand

Julian Dashper, John Nixon, and Jan van der Ploeg in The Smoothing of Things, Two Rooms, Auckland, New Zealand

Among these eleven artists a ‘smoothing’ operates. It operates differently whether thick and buttery or applied in slickly layered glazes. The painter’s attentiveness, whether pressing, rubbing or sealing over warp and weft or board, creates an intimate relation between their touch and our being touched.

Julian Dashper in Reinventing the Wheel: the Readymade Century, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne, Australia

Julian Dashper in Reinventing the Wheel: the Readymade Century, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne, Australia

Arguably the most influential development in art of the twentieth century, the use of the readymade was set in motion 100 years ago with Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel.

Julian Dashper & John Reynolds, Gow Langsford Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand

Julian Dashper

In 1984 new works by Julian Dashper and John Reynolds were exhibited together at a gallery in Wellington. At the time it was noted that these works were “about living in New Zealand and living in the world at the same time. There is simultaneously order and disorder. Everything is in motion, and to survive change we abstract our experience. We reflect ourselves back on the world according to the abstractions we have made.”

Like a long-distance relationship, points of understanding and difference between the works come in equal measure- dislocation and […]
