Eve of Destruction - Dex Hannon 2017

It's a worrying time right now isn't it.

This is a painting from a while back but current events made me think about it.

One of the crossover pieces between my geometric works and the more abstract expressionist works I am currently working on


Hope you like it!

Acrylic on canvas - 76cm x 76cm x4cm I was under a spell conjured by Bjork's vocals on the track, - 'All is full of love'. I moved the paint quickly around the surface, lost in the music, it was hard to control and reach the moment of knowing when to freeze and stop the energy flowing on to the canvas. I leave you to find your meaning for this piece. I have mine and I want the viewer to be free to interpret. Maybe put Bjorks All is full of love on, sit back and float away. Find your meaning.

Unplug yourself from Material Things
Acrylic painting on. canvas 60cm x 60cm x 4cm

We are plugged into the world. We consume more than we need. We have to stop think, breathe. Filled with a punk ethic, breaking down the traditional line to a scrawl, break free from the traditional concept of beauty. Unplug yourself from material things.

This was an experiment: a loose juxtaposition of the freedom of punk but the tightness and sharpness of playing. I painted while listening to the Erase Errata album Night Life – it has a punk esthetic but really tight hypnotic style. Really bombastic erratic and sharp. The title is trying to tell people to stop buying things they don’t need. Replacing the unbroken. The painting has a ‘repaired’ feel to it. Not clean. As if its been repaired over time.

Abstract Expressionist, taking on the world, one brush stroke at a time.

Dex Hannon is an artist, photographer, writer and one quarter of the Broken Toy Company. He was born and studied in Manchester and now resides in Yorkshire.

He works at Sopa Creativa Art Studios in Huddersfield. Dex Hannon goes where the idea takes him. The idea drives the choice of medium. He paints. He makes and use sounds. He takes photos and shapes sentences into interesting stories.

He is influenced by the music he listens to as he works as much as he is by the artists Mark Rothko and Gerhard Richter. An abstract expressionist, working in paint, digital and sound. The choice medium is driven by the idea.

Mixing techniques and bold choices he creates a battle between foreground and background. He works in rapid strokes, letting the moment and music influence movements of the brush. Interlocking raw strokes repeating to form the illusion of depth. Creating intense, emotional paintings.

I’m happy to be teaming up with the non-profit Unama’ki (UINR) ! I’ll be releasing a new song featuring Hubert Francis on June 21 for Aboriginal Day. Anyone who gives the non-profit Unama’ki a donation will receive the song before it’s released. The funds will be used to help their Nikani Awtiken summer youth program. Nikani Awtiken is for Mi’kmaw youth ages 15-18 which provides cultural experiences, immersing youth in traditional Mi’kmaw knowledge and natural resource management. You can make a donation to the non-profit either by phone (902-379-2163) or by sending them an E-transfer to “[email protected]”. You can use the password “Gathering” when sending the transfer. Send me a message after the donation has been made and I will send you the song before it’s released. The donations need to be made directly to the non-profit, I will not accept any funds. The new song was mixed and mastered by Mike Bourgeois and it also features a 73 piece choir! Here’s a list of my friends that added their voices in the choir (I can only tag 50 people, however, I'm very grateful for everyone that added their voice in the song! I wish I could tag more than 50): Alba Ram, Amy Chan, Angela Lucia, Barbara Aubie, Camilla Melanson, Catherine Pentukhoff, Chantal Roy, Cheryl Williams, Chris Howard, Christie Leigh Babirad, Chuck Irestone, Craig Ku**er, Crayon Tabibito, Daniela Weil, Danny Bourgeois, Deborah Salomon, Dex Hannon Artist, Dubravka Ugarkovic, Elizabeth Liz Davinci, Emma Lachevre, Faye Stacey, Frank Goguen, Gayle Janine, Hubert Francis, Isabelle Cormier, Jane Fetterly, Janean Collins, Jean-Pierre Chatagny, Jenny Pilong, Jocelyne Henri, Johanne Marie, Julie Arsenault, Karen Ioana, Kati Sandmann, Katja Gersak Hernández, Kelly Mercieca, Keyon Harris, Kim Mosley, Kristina Arakelian, Lavinia Occeña, Léopold Goguen, Lila Donovan Kelly, LuisetozA, Mara Cordeiro Santos, Marcel Richard, Margaret Lepera, Maria Magdalena Praptiwi, Mariani Jacon, Martina Cevero, Mary Antoinette, Matthieu Robichaud, Michele Ocean, Michel Goguen, Mick Strandvik, Nahleen Ashton, Nancy Hartling, Paige Roberts, Pierre Gagnon, Radiance Om'ack, Rebeca Marchese, Reem Fayyad Abdel Samad, Cami Karmel, Schun-chee Sway, Scott Wright, Serge Bardot, Serge Goguen, Shumbusho Patience, Suzanne Léger, Tammy Rébéré Jensen, Ericka Reynolds, Thanh Mai, Theresa Sky, Tina Gautreau and WJ Winston

After some time off, I wanted to restart with a video that pays tribute to my cat who passed away in January. The video also gives information on my annual “Music for Critters” project to help animals and the environment. This is a song that I recorded a few years ago and it always reminds me of my cat Bubbles. The next “Music for Critters” will happen in April of 2022. It features a national project with schools across Canada. Students will help non-profits as part of the fundraiser. If you are a parent, teacher or work at a non-profit, feel free to send me a message and we’ll get to work on helping as many animals as possible! Here’s the new video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6bHaJNQdWs “Music for Critters” was mixed and mastered by Samuel Alphée Richard. Also, thank you to CBC, Radio-Canada, SiriusXM Canada, East Track Mind, Atlantic Axess, East Coast Music Hour with Bill Roach, Jeff Reilly, AVA LIVE Radio, Mark Alexander Carroll, Elson Complex, Dex Hannon Artist, Sugar Junkies and more for the help with my previous song “Wolves” while I was away.
