In Proxy Geoff Todd combines the ethics of realism with the demands of his imagination and emotional vigour in a series of five presentations that question to what extent we ask others to act on our behalf. The paintings, drawings and sculptures that make up the Collateral Damage, Blood Paintings, Floral Tributes, Death Sentence Notes and VC Winners series were created between 1995 and 2008 and are a direct response to a range of major global events; September 11, the Bali 9 drug smugglers and consequent imprisonment of Scott Rush and the pervasive loss of life during times of conflict.
