Mike Parr is an Australian artist working in many mediums. In his early career he was widely known as a performance artist, Parr's videos, drawings, photographs and art pieces have been shown both in Australia and overseas. Through out his body of work there is a dynamic forcefulness that springs from a barrage of raw and spiky lines. Parr has been fascinated with observation and the possibilities and responses of memory distortions. His 'landscape' prints are such depictions - memories of views passed by.
