Artbank acquires ‘Mike’

Soft Sculpture by Australian artist Alan Jones.
'Mike', 2007, recycled febric, hessian and cotton, height 103cm


‘Mike’ has been acquired by Artbank.

‘Mike’ had been exhibited in Alan Jones’ 2007 solo exhibition ‘The Joneses’ at Legge Gallery in Sydney. This exhibition featured a series of soft sculptures and photographs that challenge our notions of a tradition family portrait. Made from hand-me-down cloths and recycled blankets, ‘Mike’ is a portrait of the artist’s father.
