The Temptation of St Antony, 1994

Country: Austraila

visited in 2013

Workshop: Printmedia-and-Drawing

I draw information used in my work from a variety of different sources both contemporary and historical. The ideas may come from obscure and seemingly unconnected bits of information but become connected through the visual relationships I bring to them. These new narrative combinations are what form the basis of the work that I produce.

I usually make work in series. Each one is built up and added to over several years. As I grow older and I see the world differently, the new images I make evolve and adapt to suit my own personal changes. Ron McBurnie
