2017 Archibald submission

Trevor Jamieson is a Wongatha Pitjantjatjara man who grew up in Esperance and Kalgoorlie. A dancer and actor, Trevor has become one of the Nation’s foremost indigenous performers, following in the footsteps of David Gulpilil and Jack Charles.

The title “Everywhere Man” celebrates Trev’s transient existence as a performer, taking him all over Australia and beyond, including India and Buckingham Palace to meet Queen Elizabeth II. Closer to home, mention his name in a country town in the middle of Australia and you’re bound to find someone who knows him or at least, hung out with him “this one time”, and the recollection will bring a smile to their face.

The journey of creating this work, from blank canvas to finished portrait, was documented over Season One of ‘The Archibald’, narrated by Rachel Griffiths. The four-part series lifted the veil on the judging process of the Nation’s most coveted portraiture prize for the first time ever.
