Artist Profile

Born 1961, Busselton, Australia

Lives & Works – Melbourne (Hampton, Boonwurrung)


Drawing from the traditions of Vanitas and Flemish still life painting, Dean Home’s virtuosic compositions celebrate the metaphysical power of objects. Entering the worlds that Home creates is like stumbling into an enigmatic narrative bursting with sensuality and exoticism. Pushing the viewer into an almost cinematic close-up with each artfully arranged collection of objects, Home’s hyper-realistic and expressionistic works provoke a palpable meditation on beauty, mortality and truth and carry with them a cultural currency that transcends time and speaks of a shared humanity.


Since graduating from Perth’s Curtin University in 1981, Home has participated in solo and group exhibitions across the country, and has been the finalist in numerous awards including the 2014 Geelong Contemporary Art Prize, the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award (2013), the Mandorla Invitational Art Prize (1991, 2002, 2004, 2006) and the 2004 Fleurieu Peninsula Art of Food and Wine Prize. His work is held in national collections including the National Portrait Gallery, National Australia Bank, Perth City Collection, Artbank, Murdoch University, Bunbury Regional and Albany City Collection, as well as corporate and private collections in Australia and overseas.
