Dean Home

An Artist's Journey


The first monograph on Australian artist and master colourist Dean Home’s life and art.


ISBN: 9780500501337 Category:


Born, raised and educated in Western Australia, Dean Home now resides in Melbourne, where he creates extraordinary still life paintings that have been highly commended worldwide for their beauty and originality.

Home’s artistic journey has been one of many decades beginning, like many artists of the past, with using the human figure to explore the mystery and significance of human existence. He later discovered that simple objects can embody a range of cultural elements that, with imagination, promote thoughts relating to history, society and human psychology. Flowers, fruit and oriental porcelain tempt the viewer to read these luxurious compositions as surreal landscapes, combining references to the classic art of the West and the oriental art of China.
