More about the artist: https://www.richmclean.com.au/ https://www.richmclean.com.au The film is both a documentary and an educational resource. 'Richard is an artist of technical facility and considerable conceptual inventiveness, but he is also an artist of courage - he explores concerns that are, if not taboo, then extremely risky. He fearlessly follows his instincts and we are lucky to share his musings.'  Anne Loxley, Managing Curator, Penrith Regional Gallery.
