Culture Crash

ARO Gallery
29 October – 10 November 2019

As a fifth generation Australian of German and English ancestry, I have seen wave after wave of immigrants settling in Australia during my lifetime and I love how much these people have enriched our lives with their diverse skills, cultures, art and foods. I live and work in suburbs that have seen huge increases in Asian immigration and I have witnessed these suburbs change from conservative, largely white, communities to vibrant multicultural communities.  My work in Culture Crash is a response to these changes.  The merging of races in my local community is reflected in my work where vases from Asia are adorned with Australian flowers and birds.  East meets Oz in still life.     John
