This series looks at some of Australia’s unique iconography and questions the relevance of such objects by putting them into a humorous and ironic light – do we need to take our icons so seriously?

Hardy admits he is bad at painting, so he's turned to the medium of using digital objects which are then manipulated into brick creations and presented in a semi-photorealistic form as digital prints.

These creations reflect his observations of people, places and objects, many drawn from items from the queer scene but also dashes of Australiana that aim to explore a sense of identity, augmenting them with a quirky twist.
