Mr Ronnie van Hout
Ronnie Van Hout is an artist best known for his distinctive brand of existential absurdism. His tragicomic oeuvre references a wide range of sources, from science fiction, cults and cinema to art history and popular and celebrity culture. He frequently draws upon childhood experiences and recollections to create wryly amusing yet heartrending micro fictions. Van Hout is represented by Station Gallery Melbourne; Darren Knight Gallery Sydney; Hamish McKay Gallery, Wellington; and Ivan Anthony, Auckland.
