Mike Parr (b. 1945, Sydney) is widely regarded as one of the most gifted living Australian artists of his generation. This selection of works on paper harking from this ongoing series is from a set of 12 self portraits belonging to the Latrobe Regional Gallery collection. These self portraits of Mike Parr by Mike Parr explore the various states we find ourselves in, mentally, physically and otherwise; navigating the everyday, the ups and downs, and everywhere in-between.
