Jack Lanagan Dunbar - Galerie L'inlassable
Jack Lanagan Dunbar

Multidisciplinary artist born in 1988 in Australia.

Inspired by the tension between materiality and time, Jack Lanagan Dunbar’s work explores history, fantasy, archaeology, classics, romance, humor and tragedy.

His work crosses media, typically incorporating elements of drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and photography into his pieces and often imposing them on each other. Copper, steel, wood, paper, and clay make up the bulk of Lanagan Dunbar’s raw materials and it is on and in these materials that he makes his marks, sometimes imposing them himself, sometimes stepping back to let the material speak for itself.

Jack Lanagan Dunbar has shown extensively in Australia and abroad, held positions at the University of Technology, Sydney, and the University of Sydney, was the recipient of the 2016 Redlands Art Prize (emerging artist) and the 2019 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship.

Artiste multidisciplinaire né en 1988 en Australie.

Inspiré par la tension entre la matérialité et le temps, le travail de Jack Lanagan Dunbar explore l’histoire, la fantaisie, l’archéologie, les classiques, la romance, l’humour et la tragédie.

Son travail traverse les médias, incorporant généralement des éléments de dessin, de peinture, de gravure, de sculpture et de photographie dans ses pièces et les imposant souvent les uns aux autres. Le cuivre, l’acier, le bois, le papier et l’argile constituent l’essentiel des matières premières de Lanagan Dunbar et c’est sur et dans ces matériaux qu’il fait ses marques, parfois en les imposant lui-même, parfois en prenant du recul pour laisser la matière parler d’elle-même.

Jack Lanagan Dunbar a beaucoup exposé en Australie et à l’étranger, a occupé des postes à l’université de technologie de Sydney et à l’université de Sydney, a reçu le prix d’art Redlands 2016 (artiste émergent) et la bourse d’art itinérante Brett Whiteley 2019.
