Untitled (A stickinsect), from the series '555 Frog poems'
These six works are from a prolific series of drawings, '555 Frog poems' which purport to be the work of Robert Pene, a Grade IV student at St Joseph's Convent. It is a kind of alter ego for MacPherson and maps the concerns he always has for place and personal history.
