Creating the everyday

Richard Dymock studied at Southern Cross University and has used his fertile imagination and the everyday for his contribution to the current exhibition at Spareroom Artspace in Lismore (71 Molesworth St), The Everyday.

The inspiration for Richard’s work comes from poster design, monsters, fridge magnets, morals, puzzles, loose colour and humour.

His co-exhibitor, Robert Cottam, also studied at SCU. Born in London, he grew up in Australia and the United Arab Emirates.

“The idea behind my paintings is to capture the sense of hyper-modern reality in daily life,” Robert said. “I have enjoyed the process of painting from photographs... the idea being to represent society with ‘painterly’ technique.”

The Everyday runs till March 13.
