and Con­di­tions by An­thony Bar­tok – con­tin­u­ing in the the stylis­tic lan­guage of chil­dren’s colour­ing-in books and car­toon im­agery, Syd­ney artist An­thony

Bar­tok’s re­cent work ex­plores the ev­ery­day re­al­i­ties and con­tra­dic­tions of liv­ing in the mod­ern western world. His hu­mor­ous de­pic­tions of ev­ery­day life com­bine the pri­vate with the public and the lo­cal with the univer­sal. The var­i­ous de­sires and fail­ures of the in­di­vid­ual are col­laged against the larger re­al­i­ties of in­dus­trial glob­al­i­sa­tion and con­sumer cul­ture to cre­ate a vis­ual ‘dou­ble-ex­po­sure’ of var­i­ous com­bined as­pects re­lat­ing to a 21st cen­tury ex­is­tence.
