TONI HASSAN: A new way
'This work explores perhaps opposite ideas - hope and erasure. It plays with and explores the materiality of paint itself. I've re-purposed the ALP's campaign material used in the 2013 federal poll. Since that election there's been heightened public debate about our democracy being broken and the need and longing for leadership that's marked by integrity and substance.
I'm also interested in questions of identity and the politics of images in the digital age. There are so many images that their effectiveness has been eroded, and their power to elicit action has diminished.'
