Daimon Downey for Merci Maison: “Event Horizon D”


The Event Horizon series by Sydney-based contemporary artist Daimon Downey consists of four artworks using carved wood, acrylic paint and highly saturated ultra blue pigment that becomes a set of sculptures within the Merci Maison Bello Frames. The pigment used is so rich and volatile that it never sets or cures so the works must be encased behind glass. An exploration of colour, balance and form. Each timeless piece is designed to be lived with, supplying its owners with a window for safety, pleasure and escape.

Artists In Residence :: a collaborative programme established to support like-minded creatives inviting seven hand-selected Australian artists to create bespoke artworks to be presented in the brand’s signature Bello Frame. Co-founders Jade & Danielle explain “Each of the artists we selected to work with, have a unique style and each tell a different story through their work. We are never formulaic, template or predictable. Rather, we like embrace imagination, innovation and originality, which each of these artist represent to us. Our brand was built to not only support our own creative pursuits, but to also support others in this space.” All pieces are exclusive to Merci Maison and available to purchase online, click here to view all artists.

All works have been photographed in studio lighting and we endeavour to show their true colours as accurately as possible.
