Conversation with Chand
Conversation with Chand. Detail. 80cmx15cm. Watercolour, oil, collage, paper cut on paper. 60cmx12cm (entire). 2011.
Conversation with Chand was made for "Merchants of War: Michael Callaghan Retrospective and Memorial Exhibition" held at Damien Minton Gallery, Sydney in 2011. The paintings ponder ideas of war through the eyes of a child. As a way of making paintings the process behind this scroll reflected earlier methods I used that involved drawing more on what lay behind the eye rather than in front of it. Some of the ideas for imagery in this scroll came through the influenced of works that have promoted my reflect on the causes of war, a significant one for me being Hayao Miazake's animated film Princess Mononoke.
Conversation with Chand will soon be viewable as a digital panorama. Please return
