Image: Jim Birkett, ‘Embedded in Land,’ 2017, mixed media on canvas, 150 x 150cm.
This body of work is embedded in an exploration of the relationship between layers of the human body and Australian landscape. It researches the many forms and postures of the male body overlaying contour images with an indulgence in the discovery of complex composition.
During the development of these artworks I have explored relationships between mark making, use of materials and unconventional drawing processes. These works are minimal and complex.
