This is an illu­mi­nat­ing jour­ney through the art and life of Mikala Dwyer, one of Aus­trali­a’s most rich­ly inven­tive artists. Wayne Tun­cliffe explores the devel­op­ment of Dwyer’s prac­tice over time, focus­ing on her ambi­tious recent work, Helen Hugh­es explores the impact of Dwyer’s par­ents on her work and Susan Best writes on Dwyer’s engage­ment with Chris­t­ian reli­gious iconography.
