Frank Littler

One of the interests that informs my work is the way that popular culture & religious culture can sometimes blend with a hybrid of images. I have spent time travelling around Italy & Thailand, both rich sources of the mysterious & the occasional oddment. I have lived in Marrickville (a place of many cultures & religions) for over 25 years. Each of these places has provided me with a rich source of the sacred & profane.”
