Paul Sloan: The Tyranny of Distance - Art Collector

Paul Sloan, Untitled, 2012. Hahnemuhle photo rag, 65 x 80cm. Edition of 3

The Tyranny of Distance is the culmination of a yearlong investigation into colonialism and colonisation within the context of the Australian landscape. Working across a variety of media, Sloan’s practice incorporates painting, sculpture, performance, sound pieces and photography. His latest body of work saw him travel to the desert, to coastal caves, and the reclaimed swamp land of Adelaide’s urban fringe to realise what he calls ‘Australian fears and visions’, historically geared yet eminently contemporary imaginings of the isolation and distance central to the formation of Australia’s history and national identity.
