Dan Elborne: Remains

Animal skulls find a delicate beauty when interlaced with porcelain.

Toowoomba-based ceramics artist Dan Elborne explores the action and consequence of human brutality.

By combining existing animal skulls and bones with porcelain, Elborne is able to capture something of the delicate nature of human violence. The subtle, impactful and intricate works demonstrate just how brutal humankind can be, and at the same time, how fragile. His works are epic; as his grad work, he recreated the white blood cells from a single drop of blood on the gallery floor, as individual porcelain marbles visitors could interact with (and even take away).

You'll find Elborne's bony fragments in gallery 2. Exhibiting concurrently are artists Brian Robinson and Christopher Trotter in ‘Chain Reaction’, as well as Pamela See in ‘In the Minority’.
