About Dean Ware

I was born in Canberra and moved to Burrill lake on the South Coast when i was 24. My love of surfing and nature were all the inspiration i needed, and i happily left the city behind. I first picked up a camera when i was around 12, a Kodak Instamatic, and have kept up this art form to this day.

Over the years of exploring and surfing the coast, i collected a large quantity of Driftwood and other local timbers which led me to create Lakewood Framing and Photography which flourished well until the digital age reshaped the industry.

Around 2010 i started working with nature both ephemerally and in sculpture, realizing my connection with the spirit of place. In surfing, you revolve around the cycles of both weather and sea, the same i found with the nature of land, weather and water. To me, both are a pure experience. Being in place, new senses are awaken felt through connection, of mind, body and time itself, and you reach, to me, naturally, without effort, a feeling of absolute belonging…a calmness, clarity and peace that you just don`t find elsewhere.

This feeling is carried in the making of the works, which they carry with them in their sculptural life…the nature of place and spirit are still there, contained within.

It is an art reflective of this entire cycle, state, environment…planet. It is an art that never ends, real, change, time…ephemerality.

In mid 2013 i moved south to Mystery Bay, surrounded by National Park and over looked by Gulaga, sacred Mother Mountain, where i continue with these art forms, working with the weather, with the nature of `place`…ideas constantly form and grow, material leading the way, time both friend and foe…tide line, stream or forest.

The idea of me making a piece entirely from nature and selling the work is that the owner will place the sculpture in their own environment, the piece becoming part of that environment, lasting many years, but still carrying the spirit of placeand the making.

My work can be purchased as listed or you can commission me to make a piece (this option provides for the sculpture to be fresh allowing the beholder to be a part of the change process as the sculpture ages).

If you are visiting or live on the South Coast, you can contact me and pick up the piece in person.

Online Art Sale

As a creative, physical medium, art often finds it challenging to adapt. We think this is fairly ironic as art can also be fluid and open to interpretation. Why then, should the showcase of physical art, be restricted to physical galleries?

The artworld is typically a small and secluded one that doesn’t get much attention from the world of technology. We wanted to change that by merging both technology and art to create a virtual gallery and online art sale platform. It is because of its secluded nature that artists find it so hard to break through and get involved and we want to do something about that. Founders Nancy Donaldson and Jarrod Knight started out with a shared goal. To create an easily accessible place for people to see, buy, learn about, and sell art online. Art Lovers Australia has become everything that envisioned and more but most importantly, it’s a community that anyone can be a part of.

How Do I Choose from All the Amazing Art For Sale Online?

When you’re spoilt for choice, choosing your next work of art isn’t easy. Art has the ability to make you feel a range of emotions so you need to first consider the tone you want to set for the space your art will go in. Something relaxing in the living area, something playful where you host guests and something sensual for the bedroom. You don’t want the wrong artwork in the wrong room as it will throw off the mood in that particular area. Another key thing to consider when browsing all the amazing art for sale online is your budget. You don’t want to find yourself in a position where you’ve fallen head over heels for artwork that’s out of your price range. Instead of showing you art that is outside of your budget, we allow you to filter your search by price, size, colour, and even medium so you find exactly what you’re looking for when you shop for art online. While you might have an idea of the type of art you’re looking for, it’s important to keep an open mind. Instead of only looking at oil paintings for sale, try not to be so narrow in your search. Broaden it a little bit and you might be surprised by what catches your eye. It could be a photograph that steals your heart in the end.
