  • [ WELCOME TO BOOM GALLERY ]

    Boom Gallery is a vibrant and active contemporary art gallery. We represent a cross section of work – from emerging and established artists, with a strong regional bias.

    We exhibit most media, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, photography, design and small objects. We give artists a platform to exhibit and sell their work and provide information about art investment.

Daniel Bushaway / Control

Control is an ongoing series observing the infrastructure used to extract, conserve, and ultimately control water.  Daniel is preoccupied with vast landscapes manipulated to facilitate mass consumption – so we have water at the turn of a tap. The series was shot on a 4×5 large-format camera during summer 2009-/ 12 in the Andalucían Basin in regional Spain and regional Tasmania, Australia. The locations have been chosen for waterways that have been diverted on an awe inspiring scale, to majestic yet unsettling effect. The colour photographs are rendered with striking clarity of detail.

The Dream Starts Here / Nick Morris

Nick Morris is an artist, graphic designer, commentator on popular culture and observer of nature.  His work is inspired by Pop Art with themes of celebrity, commercial art and identity  and the use of screen printing and collage.

“My art is the Australia that I grew up in and live in.

It’s all the images that are indelibly stamped in my mind. I feel fortunate to have been born in this country and my art is testament to that and all the other great international influences that we are exposed to. The unique culture of Australian muscle cars and the bogan culture that so often revolves around it. The beautiful form of the female even when it is thrown into that bogan culture, is still the same beautiful form that adornes the highest of levels of society. Our obsession with celebrities, their personal lives and the bizarre headlines designed to capture our attention in the media. Throw in the word nude, sex or confessions and it is sure to create excitement with a story that rarely lives up to the hype of the headline. Advertising seems to follow suit and the more conscious we become of ads of the past, they seem to be so naïve and ridiculous. It’s entertaining to think that our ego’s bought those campaigns hook, line and sinker.

I choose not be cynical but focus on what’s great about our unique culture and it is truly unique. It’s a culture that doesn’t need to take itself too seriously and can willingly take the piss out of itself. At times it can be silly, even ludicrous, but it is ‘ what we have grown up with and been exposed to over the journey so it seems all so normal.”

Nick Morris’ work forms part of “the Dream Starts Here” exhibition on now.
