Brisbane based artist, Billy Shannon’s passion as a painter is to explore the diaphany. How much tangible information does one need in order to understand the emotional life of a painting? Transitory visual clues suggest a path that the viewer may take through the work. The next time the painting is seen, perhaps another path will reveal itself.
Billy has participated in over 50 exhibitions in Brisbane, Melbourne and Tasmania and has been involved in quite a few artist run spaces. Also, Billy spent many years in the performing arts working as a scenic artist, on independent projects and major theatre productions such as ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and films such as ‘Nim’s Island’
