AUSTRALIA---Peripatetic Melbourne artist Damon Kowarsky​ likes to collaborate on projects. This show is his second with established Pakistani artist Muhammad Atif Khan. What's immediately apparent about these two dozen or so small, monochrome etchings is that in terms of visual motifs and graphic power the cultural capital is all Khan's. Khan is an image-appropriator; Kowarsky is an artist-observer who draws. [link]
