White Man You are Surrounded
A compact survey of the work of Alice Springs artist Rod Moss. For over three decades, Rod Moss has chronicled the “parallel universes” (as he puts it) of white and Aboriginal Australia in the central desert region around Alice Springs. His monumental figurative works capture indelibly both the vastness of the desert landscape and the eerie dissonance between the two cultures. Often drawing on images from old master paintings, these works are a questioning and poignant exploration of a cultural divide at the heart of the nation.
