Summary

"My work is largely autobiographical. I use my own experience as a source or starting point to develop a stream of thoughts about broader issues of race and identity. My own upbringing and cultural socialisation was the base for many ideas used in my earlier work". Gordon Bennett is one of Australia's most renowned artists.
