Gareth Sansom is a major Australian artist whose career spans more than forty years. Welcome to my mind provides an overview of the development of Sansom’s work, yet it is not a retrospective. The display is comprised of selected works that indicate certain preoccupations and recurrent motifs in the artist’s practice. Sansom produces paintings, drawings, photographs, video, and digital images. His personal approach to picture making can be interpreted in terms of assemblage and photomontage. Pop-expressionism, sociological comment, personal references, humour, and sexually provocative imagery, are all present in his work.
