Leading Australian contemporary landscape painter Idris Murphy shows and talks us through his methods in the studio. Idris has brought back several paintings which he began in the field, in places such as Fowlers Gap and Mutawintji in Far West NSW, and the Kimberleys in Northern WA, and he continues to develop these paintings in the studio. Amongst many topics, Idris discusses colour, composition, use of paint, memory, evoking place, and real presence. Filmed in May 2013 at Idris's studio in Kurnell, Sydney.
Sean has previously worked with Idris on the award winning documentary, Two Thirds Sky - artists in desert country.
