Stephen Ormandy - Only Dancing
Long recognised as one half of Dinosaur Designs, artist and designer Stephen Ormandy has spent the last fifteen years expanding on his personal artistic practice. This is the first book dedicated to surveying his vibrant, large-scale oil paintings and the playfulness he brings to everything he does. As curator and critic Lilly Wei claims, “Ormandy’s signature works are based on sophisticated, audacious colour juxtapositions and organic forms, inspired by art but also the seductive curves of the human body and nature”. In them we recognise his fascination with Australia’s often bizarre native flora and fauna, as well as the natural topographies of the Great Barrier Reef and the outback.
