Helmet is from a body of works on paper called the Tin Suit series. These prints, drawings and collages investigate and re-interpret two icons of Australian material culture: corrugated iron and Kelly Gang armour. The Kelly Gang led my infamous bushranger Ned Kelly were infamous 19th century Australian outlaws, who wore improvised metal armour suits in their gun battles with the police.
