Dónal Molloy-Drum: Decade
Molloy-Drum is influenced by the vast space of the Wimmera and Mallee region where he lives. The landscape has directed his arts practice to a place of refinement and expression of simple line and form. The use of building materials can seem quite removed from the artist’s rural home but are a strong reminder of another life lived in busy cities and his suburban upbringing in Dublin.
Through the balancing of one shape on another Molloy-Drum explores the temporal nature of life. Either supported or supporting, these shapes evolve as enduring structures and forms. The marked surfaces of these shapes, make reference to the passing of time, scars, stories and events.
