Reg Mombassa 'Twilight of the Patriarchal Gods V: Diplomacy and Proxy War of the Warrior Class,'

Regular price $4,500.00

The title of this curious work reads like a legal case from an alternate dimension. With one of the ripest imaginations in Australian art, Reg Mombassa (a.k.a Chris O’Doherty) has a knack for mixing the earthly and otherworldly. In this image, two phallic limbed beasts meet in anger. Set in a smoggy, industrialised suburb - will these creatures inherit a the nuclear war world? If so, what would Freud say? An Antipodean icon, Mombassa is one of Australia s most collected, celebrated and recognised contemporary artists. From Patrick White to Elton John, Mombassa continues to be collected widely and worn on tees.
