Summary "His strongly figurative work revolves around intimate, personal and often erotic connections with his subjects, while encompassing broader themes. Preoccupied by the nude, his bold and expressive art confronts difficult issues of national identity, Indigenous rights, sexuality, terrorism and war. Todd challenges colonial and eurocentric perspectives of Australia's place in Asia, painting the places he has lived: from Aboriginal communities of Australia's Northern Territory, Bali and Jave, and Vienna and Italy. More than anything else, his art explores the commonality of the human experience that links people across cultures."--BOOK JACKET
