This essay compares two artists. One is the canonical postmodernist Imants Tillers, whose canvas board works have been among the most theorised of Australian art. The second is Barry William Hale, whose younger art practice draws on magical practices to create images of demons and invoke spirits. The essay takes the appropriations of Tillers as a precedent for the invocations of Hale, establishing correspondences and differences between generations of Australian artists.
