Daniel Press

Queen Victoria… Bust, 2019

Beeswax, microcrystalline wax, and virgin wax

Queen Victoria… Bust references the Queen Victoria statue outside the QVB in Sydney, Australia;

formerly from Dublin, Ireland. Wax is used as a symbolic material to critique the purpose of imperial monuments. Its treatment outdoors will enact aspects of decay; perishing in the site. Working from the pretence of the imperial monuments being abstracted and self-referential – my dialogic monuments will act to delegitimise their hegemony as colonial signifiers.

 

Daniel Press is a multidisciplinary artist and researcher living in Sydney. His art projects typically examine how Australian mythology is conceived and maintained over time. His multidisciplinary practice uses blends of textiles and oil paint, as well as printmaking and drawing. He also has a developing sculptural practice using wax- based mediums.
