The Work of Art
Printed and published in 1987 as part of ' The Land' Portfolio to mark the Bicentennial Anniversary of European arrival to Australia, this is a limited edition print 54 of 80. The image or ideogram is meant to draw attention to the way in which content of a painting is given meaning by the context in which it is viewed by the viewer. The print conveys quite effectively a sense of irony and the artist's humour. It is one of a series of the same title that includes viewers looking at Munch's 'Scream' and an elaborate logo.
