Titled OA_CAMO, this mural is an extension of my Visible Invisible series which inverts the idea of camouflage. Traditionally, camouflage conceals or disguises animals or objects by using a combination of materials and colouration to optically confuse the observer. My use of camouflage amplifies, rather than conceals, my identity. The use of luminous colours commands attention and asserts a cultural presence in contemporary Australian Art.
