Paul Mumme is a multidisciplinary artist born in Brisbane. His work deals with the paradoxical aspects of human thought and behaviour, often articulated in terms of the philosophical absurd. Usually performative, it stresses the presence of a protagonist that is sometimes present as a suit-clad figure. His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions at venues including the Institute of Modern Art, Australian Centre for Photography, QUT Art Museum, Chalk Horse and Canberra Contemporary Art Space. He has held solo shows in spaces including Queensland Centre for Photography, Metro Arts and Independent Exhibitions Brisbane as well as numerous regional galleries. He has participated in festivals such as Art & About Sydney, Freerange Brisbane, PhotoLA and the Queensland Festival of Photography. His work is held in several private, corporate and government collections. He currently lives and works in Sydney.
