Regina Walter, Camoufleur. The work derives from the historical material of camouflage defence by artists working at Bankstown airport during WW11. Artists such as Max Dupain and Frank Hinder were among the Sydney Camouflage Group, led by Zoologist William Dakin. Their experiments proved to be ingenious methods of disguise, decoy and deception. Adapting Roy Lichtenstein's illusion house series, this work recreates a disguised airplane hangar. The work echoes the Camouflage Group's optical trickery, using similar elements of deception, and is reminiscent of a 1940's style home in black and white
