Daniel Boyd: Treasure Island | Author: Isobel Parker Philip

Daniel Boyd (b 1982) is one of Australia's most acclaimed young artists. His practice is internationally recognised for its manifold engagement with the colonial history of the Australia-Great Ocean (Pacific) region. Drawing upon intermingled discourses of science, religion and aesthetics, Boyd's work reveals the complexities through which political, cultural and personal memory is composed. With both Aboriginal and ni-Vanuatu heritage, Boyd's work traces this cultural and visual ancestry in relation to the broader history of Western art.

Daniel Boyd: Treasure Island is published in conjunction with the artist's first major exhibition to be held in an Australian public institution. The book will feature over 100 works from across his nearly two-decade career and includes new work and commissioned spatial interventions.
