Australian artist Helen Johnson addresses the truths of British colonial attitudes in a suite of complex, large-scale paintings that shine a hard, satirical light onto the violence, bribery and corruption underpinning Australia’s history.
Melbourne based Johnson combs through state library archives for inspiration for her heavily textured paintings. Created on unstretched canvases, each piece packs an irreverent and exuberant punch.
