What is it with Aussie painters and people floating/falling out of the sky? Is it because they are on the wrong side of the planet and so gravity doesn't work down there?

Sometimes there are people that come along that you just want to give your money to. Unfortunately though, one of my biggest questions is what the two human subjects in a majority of his work are supposed to represent. Wondering if it's a conflict in life or two contrasting personas within himself? Something else entirely? Could be as literal as using his dog. Wish that had come up in the video.

On a separate note, does anyone have a print from him? What's the quality like and can we get some detail shots around here?

Just stumbled across Joel's Facebook from a pic Josh Keyes shared the other day. Amazing work! Too bad the show will be over by the time I hit NYC in March.
