"My works are created through intense personal observation and developed through the invention of stories and mythologies...
My work describes the processes through which images come into being, unearthed from the dry loam of the head.
To me, the head is a thinking rock, a magic stone. Though it may weep and mourn, abandoned by everything it imagines, it is also a radiant conductor - from inanimate matter, animated forms are spirited." - Peter Graham

Known for his feverish imagination, Graham works across a range of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and sculpture. Born in Sydney in 1970, Graham now lives and works in Melbourne where he is represented by Tolarno Galleries.
