Girls are very much of the opinion that Elijah, Billy, Sean, and myself are very cute, cuddly, affectionate, slightly asexual, non-threatening type characters. I think when people meet Orlando or Viggo it’s kind of like a “grrrr” type thing, whereas when they meet us it’s more like “aww, oh”.
Michael Peck (b.1977, Australia) - Untitled. Oil on Linen, 198 x 198cm (2011)

Both men passed away within months of each other in 2010, prompting Michael to contemplate how little he knew about their lives and consider our inherited experiences of conflict across generations.
