born in 1975 and currently based in Melbourne. He manipulates an image of landscape digitally then draws it by hands as if to map the image. With extremely compressed distance between micro and macro, his work aims to evoke a sense of anxiety derived from the resless flow of visual information that appears and disappears around us. Carr has been exhibiting both nationally and internationally. His work will be shown in the Japan-Australia group exhibiton `Immanent Landscape' at Oyama City Kurumaya Museum between September17 and November 27.
