Danie Mellor is a multi-award-winning contemporary Australian artist. Interested in the convergence of culture, history, people and the environment, Mellor is deeply driven by his European and Aboriginal ancestry, and holds a strong spiritual and cultural connection to the area that is home to his mother's family, the region of the Atherton Tablelands in Northern Queensland. His works consider Australia's colonial legacy and address the entangled histories of Australia's Indigenous and settler communities. Exquisitely crafted and embellished, Mellor's landscapes in his signature blue-and-white palette appropriate the designs of Spode bone china and confront our understanding of the past, highlighting the impact of settlement on Australia's original inhabitants, flora and fauna. 
 
Mellor completed a Doctor of Philosophy at the National Institute of the Arts, Australian National University and a Master of Fine Art at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design in the UK. He has won numerous awards, including the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (2009) and the Tallis Foundation Works on Paper Award (2008), and has also been awarded research grants by the University of Sydney (2006) and the Australia Council for the Arts (2000–2003). Mellor's works have been included in several high-profile group and solo exhibitions including Danie Mellor: Exotic Lies, Sacred Ties at the University of Queensland Art Museum and TarraWarra Museum of Art (2014) as well as Culture Warriors: Triennial of Indigenous Art at the National Gallery of Australia (2007) and Primavera at the Museum of Contemporary Art (2005). His work is held in national, state, regional and private collections including at the National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the National Gallery of Victoria and Artbank, and in the Stokes Collection and the Packer Collection.

Sophie Gannon Gallery now representing Danie Mellor

Sophie Gannon Gallery is pleased to annouce its representation of Danie Mellor.

Working in a variety of mediums – from printmaking and drawing to sculpture and installation – Mellor’s practice explores potent themes of colonial settlement, cultural dislocation and national identity. His work has been included in high profile exhibitions including the National Indigenous Art Triennial Cultural Warriors (National Gallery of Australia, 2007), Curious Colony (Newcastle Regional Gallery, 2011) and Primavera (MCA, 2005). In 2009, Mellor was awarded the prestigious 26th Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award, and his work will again be shown in the National Indigenous Art Triennial unDisclosed at the National Gallery of Australia in May 2012.

Mellor's work is held in numerous private and public collections, including the National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, the Queensland Art Gallery, the National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of South Australia, Artbank and the Kerry Stokes Collection.

A major survey of Mellor’s work is to be held at the University of Queensland Art Museum in 2013.
