Consider the big picture: the cultural and sociological context of rapid globalisation and the proliferation of instant information and imagery technology. The photograph, once having the power of truth, has been subverted by digital technology, a postmodern contemporaneity which has deemed painting and aestheticism redundant.
Consider the generations of art–career graduates funneled into "nurtured" arenas of diminished opportunities, and the recent Australia Council reports, informing us that art/culture only half matters to Australian society anyway.
These questions are considered in Remove… and refined from a particularly South Australian perspective.
