Tracey Moffatt's measure

" What month was I birthed" after Tracey Moffatt's "Birth Certificate, 1962, 1994"

Tracey Moffatt's work transcends the power of social disturbances, her Australian Aboriginal photo sets are art, and a reminder that art imitates life in experences. I had an inclination that our portraits of celebrities where similar, although theses studies are independent, no wardrobe, no sets, no money.

I had many ideas parodying Tracey Moffatt but I realized I was being repetitive. So I decided to mock the Australian outdoors in a triptych staring Mel Gibson in his shorts washing his car with a large cactus over a blazing sun, all photographed at the same time. I also dusted my body with red sand, you can't see it but it is there to represent an Australian Aborigine warrior.
