Our front cover artist for this issue is the masterful abstract painter Michael Johnson. We take a deep look at the life and works of Guy Warren at 95 years of age. Sarah Contos is queried before her new animation installation in Adelaide. You might laugh with Vivienne Shark LeWitt’s emphatic narratives. Ah Xian sculptures will amaze, as will John Beard’s repainting of ‘The Raft of the Medusa’.
