“The genesis of the highly successful series presented at Sydney Contemporary last year, Tree: Sentinel comprises an image of the artist’s family land, overlaid with minimal line motif. The lines are drawn in the same pink-dyed poison his family uses on their property to kill weeds and invasive plant species that were largely introduced to Australia through colonisation. The work is visually simple and strikingly poetic.”
