He has been a central figure in Australian art since the 1970s, producing works which combine a rigorous conceptual base with observations about ordinary life and people. The surface simplicity and austerity of his works belie his complex investigation into visual and linguistic structures. Focusing on the structures of the common world around him and drawing from the folkloric traditions of rural Australia, he creates works that are playful and poetic.
