“X marks the spot: The intersection of two lines on a surface. When such a spot on a map is realised in a place, another kind of cross is produced: A line into the distance, perhaps its extension behind us and an horizon line in front of us. This existential axis is pushed into and across the world by a standing person. It is a measure or image of how the world is perceived. I explore such a stance and its multiplicity's – by overlapping two ways of seeing.”
Vickers work is held in many public and private collections including Australian National Gallery, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Queensland Art Gallery, Heidi Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art, Curtin University, Holmes a Court Collection, Melbourne University.
