Dark Horse Experiment

Dark Horse Experiment was launched in July 2011 as a collaboration between Stephen Nall, formerly Dickerson Gallery and artists Adrian Doyle and Joel Gailer. Doyle and Gailer have previously directed Michael Koro Galleries (MKG).

The same gallery space in Franklin Street, Melbourne has been re-newed to provide a high quality exhibition space for traditional and 'new media' performance art. The gallery will maintain and extend its experimental theme and provide artists with specialised promotional support in the development of their career.

'It will exhibit ground-breaking young emerging artists and a handful of influential established artists,' Nall says.

'The philosophy of the gallery has been to provide project space for experimentation in a nurturing environment. The gallery will appeal to cutting edge artists that just need the right environment and experienced support to flourish. I am confident that this 'experiment' will make a big impact on the commercial gallery art scene in Melbourne, which has been devoid of anything that really inspired me for years' says Nall. 'The artists... [ Read all ]

Press Releases

Dark Horse Experiment would like to invite you to the opening of James Bonnici's solo exhibition, In-between Space. Please join us on Friday 13th September, starting at 6:00pm.

"Through portraiture and landscape, my work explores how distortion, blurriness, light and space may be used to depict psychological states, perceptions and how we experience our physical reality. Painting and drawing from photographs taken with my phone camera allows me to interpret my immediate surroundings and subjects that are close to me.

The portraits of heads in motion capture a number of moments not ordinarily perceptible. They give us a glimpse of the in-between and what lies beneath the surface. Distortion is created through the representation of subjects in motion, hinting at the subjects’ psychological state. Painting the motion blur materializes the distortion created by the camera, transforming the movement into fleshy, sculptural vessels of contortion, while the darker tones of the drawings seek to heighten the underlying anguish. These approaches draw on the disturbing, grotesque elements of the initial subject in order to accentuate... [ Read all ]
