MARS Gallery presents a new body of work by Damien Shen. Shen is an artist who has become nationally renowned both for his remarkable skills as a draughtsman and for his unique explorations of personal background. He was born from the rich combined heritage of mainland China and the Ngarrindjeri peoples of South Australia and he has adopted traditional imagery and documentary exploration to create works that embrace both traditional drawing and wet-plate collodion photographic processes.

In A Stone From Another Mountain, the artist searched for archival images of paintings from various Dynasty periods and discovered that the Shen family name harks from China’s Song Dynasty period. The resulting black and white works reveal a rich cultural tapestry of Ngarrindjeri/Chinese culture.

This exhibition is open by appointment. Please contact the gallery to arrange a suitable viewing time. The exhibition can also be viewed on the gallery website. View exhibition here.
