A promising young Australian painter, Gene A’Hern is a graduate from the National Art School whose work investigates the internal dialogue and spiritual relationship we have with our surroundings with abstract assemblages of colour and form.
Upon discovering my dyslexia and understanding how it affects my vision, I became cognisant of the reasons behind my previous frustrations with depth perception. Now, rather than fear it, I have allowed the process of abstraction to become not only a catalyst for my work, but also a mantel for myself as an artist.I began permitting my frustration to lead the paintbrush instead of my own ideals and wishes. This was a way for me to accept my dyslexia. My paintings aren’t of the world I wish I knew, but of the world I truly know. – Art Profile
