Congratulations Michael McWilliams Archibald Finalist

Congratulations to Michael McWilliams who is a finalist in the 2016 Archibald Prize showing at the Art Gallery of New South Wales 16 July – 9 October 2016.

His painting, The Usurper (Self-Portrait) synthetic polymer on linen, 200 x 160 cm is an environmental statement about the relationship between humankind and the earth, in particular the effect of introduced species and their seizure of power over native flora and fauna, an ongoing theme in McWilliams’ oeuvre.
