Damien Baumgartner

Painter, Artist

Damien Baumgartner investigates the haunting quality of an empty highway as the inspiration for his work. Focusing on the overlooked and the mundane, Baumgartner’s roadsides, replete with debris, force a new reading of our urban position.

The artist completed his Masters of Fine Art at the University of Tasmania examining the visual and psychological implications of roads and highways in northern Tasmania. In particular, navigation and mapping via road kill or bird’s eye views; exploring ways of representation of country highways from the viewer’s perspective, simply by stepping out of the vehicle.
