Dani Marti is one of Australia’s most exciting artists recently rising to international acclaim, challenging audiences, curators, and critics with his unorthodox combination of hand-woven ‘canvases’ and video documentary. Connecting the two mediums is a kind of portraiture which strives to get beneath the ‘surface’ of family, friends, lovers, and strangers. These psychological, sociological, emotional, and often graphic physical depictions push ethical boundaries, raising difficult questions about relationships, the role of the artist and the power of the video camera.
