Continuing a tradition that developed during the First World War, the Australian War Memorial has, in the last decade, commissioned many official artists to explore and record the Australian experience of war and peacekeeping around the world. Perspectives presents the unique insights of two leading contemporary artists responding to the subject of peacekeeping.
Jon Cattapan travelled to Timor-Leste and eX de Medici to the Solomon Islands. Both artists gained insight into the role of Australian peacekeepers and from these experiences created a series of works that reveals a personal vision and artistic style.
