Australian-born Dexter Davey is an internationally based artist who enjoys working with the medium of the moving image. Conceptually, Davey has been experimenting with a technique using loops within loops thus creating an eternal recurrence. In his video Bearing West 4 Eva which he created last year in Canada, he attempts to fuse this loop concept and technique for the first time. The work aesthetically pays homage to the first boom of gaming consoles and a golden era of Hollywood cinema. The pre-internet age of the 80’s and early 90’s where the mysticism and magnetism of the USA and the American Dream was perhaps never stronger.
