Anthony Breslin Artist

Anthony Breslin Once Upon A Time In My Heart Part 2

Anthony Breslin is one of Australia’s most original, unique, eclectic, and evocative artists. Working from his Melbourne studio, he has managed an artistic career that has included production design for Theatre, Television, Film and Music Videos, as well as the creation of his own public theatrical installations and mesmerising events. Breslin’s passion, however, is painting and this he has done with much success as the freshness and diversity of his works have seen him achieve a cult like status with sell out exhibitions around Australia and shows in Europe, UK and Asia. Darts, pencil sharpeners, train tracks, balls, toothpaste tubes, jigsaw pieces, and a myriad of other objects simultaneously meld together and leap out from Breslin’s canvases demanding immediate attention. Whether it is the fantasy world he creates in the bazaar landscapes of his “abstracts” or the unnerving introspection of his heads and figures or even the cheeky playfulness he captures in his bugs and frogs, there is always something more than enough in his compositions to inspire, provoke, challenge and delight everyone from young children to serious art aficionados.

Artist Statement

“My work aims to be a form of dazzling, seductive, theatre of the absurd, with an infinite array of possibilities pertaining to both what it is and what it can be. I am inspired by everything from the absurd-ist plays of Eugene Ionesco to tribal masks, rock pools, colour philosophy, found objects, topography, land & underwater seascapes, and the intense beauty of a life lived with the finite conditions of mortality. Great evocative theatre can be an experience that encapsulates the senses and seizes the heart and this is a goal I set out to achieve with both my painting/drawing work and my own performance/productions. My story telling is intended to inspire story making within the imagination of the viewer.

With my painting/drawing work I want to engage and seduce my audience physically so as they want to touch the work or at least to examine the surface closely through sheer curiosity. I want the works to remain mysterious and enchanting to the viewer from both a distance and close inspection. So through seduction and curiosity I aim to beckon the viewer forward.

And through “theatre-scape” I aim to push the viewer back so as they can experience the work in its totality. Life is far from a literal experience for me so my work is about questions/inquiry not solutions, it wants to provoke imagination and possibility not provide it.

The surfaces on these works are very tactile as they are often laden with an array of found trinkets (zips, beads, carpet, spectacles, wallpaper, wood, broken glass, toy pieces, and an infinite array of other objects that now have a new context to live in. Often they are painted and presented amidst an array of coloured paint pools, globules, dots, dashes and shapes that now make up new theatrical worlds full of new characters to be reckoned with.

My own theatrical productions are a natural extension of this idea. Physically the objects just become larger, instead of beads I use people instead of wooden pieces I use car tyres either way the context may change but the “objects” still serve my “theatre-scapes” weather they are static or moving.

Naturally these productions are driven by a different form of storytelling as I use acting, dance, mime, live painting, projection, music, and multimedia to communicate my thoughts on the importance of cross cultural/ethnic unity, and environmental and social responsibility. My productions plots also revolve around my belief in the beauty of human struggle and my faith in spiritual/personal transcendence through this struggle.”
