Adam Rish has exhibited since 1975 holding 41 solo exhibitions. He is represented in many of the major Australian collections and won numerous awards. His interest is in cross cultural collaboration as “world art” (like “world music”) to affirm indigenous culture, regional diversity and the possibility of productive inter-cultural relations. He has worked with textile makers in Indonesia since 1975, with weavers in Turkey since 1988, with Aboriginal painters since 1994, and more recently with indigenous artists in Tonga, the USA and Bali. Basing his art on local rather than international influences, he employs indigenous techniques and adapts them with modern technological and domestic images so, for example, cars, planes and television sets may take the place of traditional abstractions of flowers, birds and clouds.
