Through his painting practice, artist Richard Lewer explores the themes of fraternity, alienation, and subculture, observing and documenting communities on the fringes of society. His new series for the Basil Sellers Art Prize will reflect his engagement with the Aboriginal community of Panngurr in Western Australia, exploring the potential of Aussie Rules football to foster discipline, ambition and community.
