Playing with a narrative which starts out as hope quickly becomes a hegemony of power and a carnival of vice. In regards to love and family Danny’s work leaves the viewer both with a sense of what could have been and with a sense of how those feelings have been distorted by gender politics and advertising.

Using pen and ink Augustine begins with an empty mind and a sheet of paper. And what starts with a random splash soon grows into an exploration of his concerns, feelings and the forces that influence his life, his process determined by a lexicon of particular colours, forms and lines. His evolving drawings grow out of a random movement and into a more articulate expression of his being, an unknown landscape that he traverses, bringing us with him, each image is born out of memories and experiences and 24 hour rolling news; the Syrian civil war, the earthquake in Nepal, the posturing of North Korea.
