In this episode of The Art Hunter David Hunt talks with visual artist Andrew Delaney about his extraordinary and innovative art.
Born in the Western District of Victoria in 1966, artist Andrew Delaney moved to Melbourne in 1986 and studied for two years at the Melbourne College of Decoration. This included photography, technical and life drawing, and studies in graphics. After leaving college, Delaney worked for a decade at the retail institution Myer Melbourne, as a visual merchandiser and stylist – designing displays in fashion, homewares, craft, and cosmetics. Delaney also spent his time creating many works of photography and painting.
In 2011 Delaney left full-time work to pursue his art opening his studio Anno Domini Home in the Nicholas Building in Melbourne’s CBD – joining a community of artisans and artists, in one of the city’s most established and beloved creative hubs. Anno Domini Home is Delaney’s workshop but also acts as a showcase of his creations and how they relate to each other. Using vintage and unwanted fabrics I explore the notion of life’s vulnerabilities and our mortality. Layers of fabric become flesh and bone, muscles and sinew. Visitors to “Anno Domini Home” then overlay their own stories and emotions – my creations take on new meaning through this interaction.
