Alan & Susan McCulloch, The New McCulloch’s Encyclopedia of Australian Art, Meigunyah Press, Melbourne, 2006, p 885: "He served as an army lecturer in Japan, c. 1948, and held his first exhibition at the Mirka Gallery, Melbourne, with his then wife Dawn Sime, in 1954... Interested equally in the philosophy and technology of painting, he adopted surrealist methods and ideas from about 1940, his aim being, as he expressed it, ‘to reconcile intellectual control learned in Japan to the subconscious expression of surrealism.’"
