Description:
Described as a lovechild of modern primitivism's denouncement of the ultra-technological urban landscape, surrealism's revolt against the tyranny of Reason, and expressionism's desire to externalise the inner turmoil of the individual, Breslin's work is composed of circuitous outlines, undulating curves and Pollock-esque paint splatters, as well as deformed human faces and bold, festive colours. These embody Breslin's attempt to depict the plight of the modern-day human forever a entrenched in the process of self-formation and self-assertion. But there is also a performative aspect to his art - to Breslin, art is a doing, a transformation of the material used, with artist and artwork engaging in a subsuming trance-dance of creation. As Breslin himself explains: "This manic search in coloured paint is an attempt to encapsulate the memory of an imaginary kaleidoscope I yearned for as a child, but never did it manifest itself in any birthday box I ever knew." Includes a foreword by The Hon. Paul M. Guest QC and an introductory essay by Dr Lisa Etheridge of RMIT University, along with a list of Breslin's exhibitions and a personal timeline.
