This is No Rose Garden (triptych)

This is No Rose Garden (triptych) artist Clinton Nain

Clinton Nain

This triptych utilises domestic materials such as heritage coloured house paint, bitumen paint and domestic household bleach.

Born in Melbourne, Clinton Nain considers the history of his homeland in his potent paintings and performance art.

Nain exposes the vicious crimes against traditional landowners of the country by European settlers, tackling these difficult subjects with a sophisticated wit and injecting a seemingly absurd humour.

Nain’s life has been shaped by Aboriginal politics; he attended his first Aboriginal land rights protest when he was just one month old with his activist mother.
