Presented by Northern Centre for Contemporary Art
Alice Springs artist Rod Moss is one of the most significant artists working in the Territory and for the first time Darwin art lovers will be able to see a solo exhibition of his work.
He paints in a realism style that is based on photography and his subjects are the people and scenes he encounters in his day to day life.
Moss has said of his art: “The most significant experience for me, in Alice Springs, has been touching Indigenous lives, and I wanted to bring something of this into my art. Where else in Australia would I be so painfully aware that two strikingly opposed cultures share space while operating in parallel universes? Where was the art reflecting this fact?”
Moss is also an accomplished writer and his memoir The Hard Light of Day won the Prime Minister’s Non-Fiction Award and the NT Book of the Year award in 2011.
