Andrew took me to where as a child he developed his relationship with nature, scouring the escarpment for deer antlers that have been shed. The area is now restricted as it has been possessed by Wongawilli Coal Mine. Home in Dapto, Andrew must confront the loss of his childhood spaces to development.

Portrait of Andrew Ucles (2016), based on Michelangelo’s “Torment of St. Anthony” (c. 1487–1488), which is based on Martin Schongauer’s etching “The Temptation of St. Anthony” (c. 1470-75)

In this digital portrait “wild man” Andrew Ucles replaces St. Anthony, the first saint to venture into the wilderness, most famous for his confrontation of various temptations and demons. After his death, St. Anthony was secretly buried on the mountain top where he had chosen to live.
