Bruno Leti on the cross and the matrix

Hear about artist Bruno Leti's investigation into the symbols of the cross and the matrix as part of his 2006 creative fellowship.

During nine months of research at the Library, Leti examined the works of a diverse range of artists who utilise the form of the cross, including Antoni Tàpies, Piet Mondrian, Arthur Boyd and Rover Thomas. Throughout the project, Leti kept a daily journal recording his observations and inspiration. His jottings and sketches in the journal served as a springboard to larger works made on paper, metal, glass, canvas and wood.

Bruno's book The matrix was published in 2010.
