Mal Mcilwraith

  • Artist’s Statement

    Mal’s images represent predominantly his attempt to order his view of the world around him. While most of the images evolve out of the ideas surrounding the Australian landscape, Mal includes a metaphorical element in many images which express his concern for the fragility of the natural world. Mal approaches his ideas with a willingness to transform landforms and nature to tell his story of concern. He thinks of his images as visual poetry, where multiple meanings could be attributed to any given image.
