With a career that spans almost 30 years Dean Home has created a distinct style that communicates his journey as an artist. Having held numerous solo exhibitions throughout Australia, Home is represented in state, regional and private collections both in Australia and abroad. With bold and opulent work that makes a statement as it interweaves within both the still life and landscape genres. He explores diverse strands of thought and meaning by bringing together an array of influences to create his sumptuous and theatrical beauties.
Dean was born in 1961, at Busselton Western Australia and studied 1979 -1982 at Curtin University, Perth. He was Lecturer in Drawing & Printmaking at Kalgoorlie College in 1985 and moved to Victoria to become Lecturer in Drawing, at Ballarat University College during 1986 and 1987. Since his first exhibition in 1984 at Howard Street Gallery in Perth, Dean has had over fifty solo exhibitions across Australia. He has been included in over 20 significant group exhibitions.
