Australian artists on Asia

Considering a view on Asian Art, I draw upon a range of experiences. Access as a young art student in Brisbane to the Asia Pacific Triennial was important, as was my first international residency in the Tokyo Australia Council studio in 1998. A long-term engagement now with Japan has led to great respect and interest in Japanese artists and curators. I remain impressed by their conceptual rigor and physical commitment to art and the insightful view of Japan they provide through their practices. The philosophical and formal interrogation of contemporary existence encompassing Japanese history, politics and culture defines a type of art, distinctive and obviously Japanese.
