New Dadaist Dingo – ” Seeing/Putting the Extra in the Ordinary” TMs
* Purport of the work; The common association, with most dog-owners, of mud on the parked-up car from the bumpy drive along the dirt track to the rural car park, as the dog(s) eagerly disembark for their country/woodland “walk” – that invevitably becomes an excited yelping chaotic run once off the lead and a squirrel or rabbit is sighted.
The mud by the sill of Dingo’s Rangy is carefully manipulated and small spaces cleared to create imaginary canine forms in chase mode.
Update, July 2014; Expose of artist Ali Banisadr’s painting ” The Chase”, takes the spirit, the chaotic semi-abstract forms suggesting animal movement and the subject in the word “chase” from the description of the above Work and adds color to create a painting passed off as original and new.
The Chase, by Ali Banisadr.
