Damien Kamholtz


Australian artist Damien Kamholtz spent the first few years of his life in the Northern Territory before moving to Queensland where he now lives in Toowoomba working as an art teacher and tutor. He is a "prolific painter with a strong interest and focus on art and its relationship to the landscape. Through travel around the country, he has discovered and sought to express the parallels between indigenous cultures in a traditional and contemporary sense. His art is an attempt to communicate to the heart and spirit, rather than our intellect—images comprising of subtle and suggestive combinations of nature's organised and abstract shapes, entwined in universal and personal symbolism that incorporate suggested faces, figures and totemic animals."
