Dean Crozier is a queer artist working in Brisbane. Dean's work is abstract in nature with the use of vibrant and strong colours.
Many of the pieces Dean produces revolve around situations or events which have had a personal impact.
Issues with mental health have been a strong influence on Dean's recent work and are best explored in an abstract style. The ability to explore emotional subjects through a pictorial representation results in works which have both visual appeal and emotional connections for the viewer.
"Depression and the isolation that this promotes is on display in this work. The sole figure crouched in the center of the image represents someone struggling with depression. The sharp lines surrounding the figure showing the barriers someone battling depression put up to protect themselves. These barriers in turn prevent those who wish to help from being able to get close to the person in need of human contact. This image shows the cycle of isolation created through depression which results in a deepening of that depression."
