Peter Drew: All you need is LIKE - Art Collector

Peter Drew, Adelaide’s Forgotten Outlaws

Drew's work plays with our sense of anachronism by placing historic iconography in a contemporary context or style. A notable example was Drew's recent project presenting criminal mug shots from the 1920s as larger than life, public portraits. For All you need is LIKE these criminals are brought into the gallery within the gilded frames of their era. History is also present in Drew's series of pixelated nudes which present the forms of classicism and early modernism in a contemporary style.
