The Fleeting Self presents the Australian landscape as a meditation on the self. In these new works, Imants Tillers’ subjective and emotive reaction to an esoteric world is presented in a grand, painterly atmosphere. We travel through the names and textures of many places, framing strangely familiar narratives. Whether it be trekking across outback Australia or standing upon Mt Kosciuszko, Tillers observes, quotes and re-masters landscape as we know it. These works continue the conceptual rigour of repetition and appropriation inherent to Tillers’ linguistic landscapes that contemplate our ever-transitory experience.
