‘The Philosophy of Doubt’ looks for common ground between aspects of contemporary Western Desert art and the metaphysical paintings of 20th century Italian master, Giorgio de Chirico.
Using his signature canvas boards, Tillers employs appropriation and textual references to create highly personal and thought-provoking paintings. By exploring themes within modern European aesthetic and ideology and the rich Indigenous art and cultural heritage of Australia’s remote interior, Tillers forms a bridge between two distant cultures.
