David ‘MEGGS’ Hooke – Rain To Rust

David ‘MEGGS’ Hooke – Rain To Rust

‘Rain to Rust’ is a collection of expressive new works by MEGGS that explore duality, movement, change and regrowth.

Stemming from his recent residency with QBank Gallery in Queenstown, Tasmania. ‘Rain to Rust’ marks a reconnection period in MEGGS’ personal journey and artistic practice and a return home to Melbourne following his time spent in the USA, predominantly within Los Angeles (CA), Hilo (HI) and Detroit (MI).

“This work is a deeper, more personal and abstract exploration into my own intuitive art practice and a response to the fluid connections I found in the spectrum of landscapes experienced during my travels, from dense forest foliage and coastal waters to industrial decay and urban regrowth.”

‘Rain to Rust’ features a collection of new paintings, multiples on wood, interior mural and 3-Dimensional installations which celebrates the energy and cathartic release of mark making, providing MEGGS with an escape and peace of mind which the artist hopes inspires similar feelings in others.
