Coulter-Smith also argues that the lack of authorial presence that arises out of Tillers' approach foregrounds the role of the viewer in the construction of meaning and in so doing expands the discourse of appropriation into the multi-dimensional space of intertextuality.

Imants Tillers is a postmodern "appropriationist," representing a significant tendency in art of the last 20 years that the author traces back to its precedents and origins. Tillers deconstructs the artist’s authorship, opening the door to the multi-dimensional space of intertextuality. Tillers is best known in his adopted country, Australia. But this book illustrates and discusses his art not in isolation, but beside some of the major art movements in the United States and Europe. Points of comparison include Cindy Sherman, Hans Haacke, David Salle, and Barbara Kruger.

Tillers has been portraying the Australian landscape, an iconic image of much importance to our national identity in his paintings. Tillers has developed a unique and iconic style of art that merges landscape painting with the written word. He overlays his painting with text by way of exploring and discussing the conceptual drive behind a piece of art, which allows him to engage in a dual mode of communication the visual and the written word to reinforce his message.

Postmodernism broadly refers to a socio-cultural and literary theory, and a shift in perspective that has manifested in a variety of disciplines including the social sciences, art, architecture, literature, fashion, communications, and technology. It is generally agreed that the postmodern shift in perception began sometime back in the late 1950s, and is probably still continuing. Both schools reject the rigid boundaries between high and low art. Postmodernism even goes a. step further and deliberately mixes low art with high art, the past with the future, or one genre with another.

The strategy of postmodern appropriation that burgeoned into an international style in the 1980s is currently epitomised by the work of New York artists such as Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Hans Haacke and David Salle. This book examines the parallel yet highly original evolution of Australia's leading appropriationist, Imants Tillers.The author argues that whereas the New York school was predominantly based on the appropriation of mass media imagery, from 1975 onwards Tiller turned to the appropriation of fine art imagery. While the New York school was primarily oriented towards a deconstruction of the ideological signs of mass media, Tillers pioneered an alternative Australian school of appropriation based on the deconstruction of authorship.Coulter-Smith also argues that the lack of authorial presence that arises out of Tillers' approach foregrounds the role of the viewer in the construction of meaning and in so doing expands the discourse of appropriation into the multi-dimensional space of intertextuality.
