australian artists at war
Battle Lines works on the premise that for as long as Australians have been involved in wars the victories ands setbacks have been recorded by artists.
Scott Bevan is an award winning Australian journalist who has interviewed many of his fellow Australians who have recorded the experiences of Australians overseas and at home during national conflict. These artists include Sir William Dargie, Nora Heysen, Ray Parkin, Bruce Fletcher, Ray Beattie, Wendy Sharpe and Peter Churcher.
'Their stories are fascinating, painting a vivid picture of the artists' experience of depicting conflict: the hope and tragedy, inspiration and frustration, humanity, and beauty that can be found amid the death and destruction of war.'
