About the artist
Dan Moynihan lives and works in Melbourne. Mixed Emotions was first presented at his solo exhibition at Tolarno Galleries in 2019. This work was acquired by Wesfarmers in 2019 and it is on loan from the Wesfarmers Collection.
Moynihan has displayed his work in galleries nationally and internationally including Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA), Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, and The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne. His work is held in the Collection of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and at the Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart.
“Dan Moynihan’s artistic development has been informed by ‘too much cinema, inappropriate texting, bricks, driving a shit car, bad habits, taking things too far, renting, Magic 1278 radio ‘the greatest songs of all time’, not accepting baldness, other people, Bunnings Warehouse, not going far enough, eating alone in restaurants’ – just to name a few. His work is often structured around the funny side of a story; and his carefully arrangement of objects are like the punctuation of a good joke.”
