Artist Statement

‘Ken Done it! #6’ comments on the history of Australian landscape. The work is part of the ‘ The Wonderful Land of Oz’ series, which articulates a critical reading of the Australian landscape as it is presented in tourism destination shots. Employing scenic painting techniques the life-size set is occupied by real performer acting out contemporary and colonial narratives. With a storybook aesthetic, this photograph a present pristine vista, re-imagined with reference to personal, political and historical issues. The works play with reality and illusion in a way that hints at a level of contrivance and obfuscation.
