Far North Queens­land artists Phil Johns and Ian Tun­bridge re­spond to vet­ted images taken on the bat­tle­fields of Afghanistan by in­di­vid­u­als serv­ing in the Special Air Ser­vice Reg­i­ment. The works speak of the hard­ship and sac­ri­fice of th­ese in­di­vid­u­als, rein­ter­pret­ing some of their dark­est ex­pe­ri­ences through in­dus­trial as­sem­blage and large-scale draw­ings and paint­ings. They ex­pose the coarse vis­ual lan­guage ap­par­ent in armed con­flict, and the grit and ded­i­ca­tion of those who ex­pe­ri­ence it.
