A LOOK AT ABORIGINAL CULTURE ARRANGED AROUND THE PHILOSOPHER’S NAME JOHN LOCKE

James Rowell

11 Dec 2014 to 21 Dec 2014

... all paintings employ an ingenious evocation of the name of the philosopher John Locke which is coherent and to the point. Aboriginal culture is an important influence upon the work as well as an embrace of a certain subjective wilfulness and I am very pleased with the subjectiveness of the work because in today's society there's far too much quasi objectivity, "logic", "common sense" etc. which is passed of as objectivity.
