Artist, Author, Academic & Art Critic for 'The Age'

Downs has always worked in a non-rectilinear format; his paintings burst out of their frame over thirty years ago and have never gone back. In recent times, Downs has spent considerable time in China and has just returned to Sydney after working for eight months in studios in Beijing, he has developed a series of works which attempt to come to terms with the astonishing energies of a city and a country which is in a vortex of activity.
