Artists on Artist

Join artists Joe Frost and Idris Murphy as they discuss Ken Whisson’s artistic influences and his legacy on the Australian contemporary art scene.


Joe Frost is an artist based in Sydney. His recent paintings address the subject of human beings in the city. ‘His images revolve around the environment of the urban space and its social sphere. Exposed to Frost’s speculations in the studio, the world we inhabit is presented as precarious and contingent.’ (David Eastwood, 2012) He is represented by Watters Gallery, Sydney. He teaches at the National Art School, Sydney and writes regularly for local art publications.

Idris Murphy is an abstract expressionist, typically taking the landscape as his subject. His awards include the Hunters Hill Art Award, the Keith and Elizabeth Murdoch Travel Fellowship, the Dyason bequest fund for Australian Artists overseas, and the Moya Doring Memorial Residence, Paris. His works are held in many collections here and overseas including Clot/Bramsden et Georges Studio Paris, Rockhampton Art Gallery, Australian National Gallery Canberra, Parliament House Canberra, Biblioteque National de Paris, National Library, Canberra, Art Gallery of New South Wales, and Bendigo Regional Gallery.
