Titled OA_CAMO, Reko Rennie's mural is an extension of his Visible Invisible series which inverts the idea of camouflage. Traditionally, camouflage conceals or disguises animals or objects by using a combination of materials and colouration to optically confuse the observer. Rennie's use of camouflage amplifies, rather than conceals, his identity. His use of luminous colours commands our attention and asserts his cultural presence in contemporay Australian Art.
