Australian artist Gareth Sansom is celebrated for daring paintings, collages and watercolours which combine diverse references and imagery. His colourful and densely layered canvases explore psychological and material transformation and are charged with sexual energy. Gareth Sansom: Transformer includes 130 works from the artist's sixty-year career, as well as critical essays by Ashley Crawford, Sebastian Smee and Pip Wallis. In a candid interview with curator Simon Maidment, Sansom also traces his path to becoming one of Australia's most provocative artists.
