Professor Sasha Grishin AM, FAHA, the Sir William Dobell Professor of Art History, Australian National University, writes:

"Peter Sculthorpe is one of Australia's greatest contemporary composers, while Garry Shead is one of Australia's most distinguished visual artists. For many years they have travelled along parallel paths, sharing common interests and common sources of inspiration. In their separate ways, they have explored a fascination with the Australian landscape and its cultural identity. They have responded in very personal ways to two significant events in Australia's literary history. The first of these was D.H. Lawrence's novel Kangaroo, written in 1922 when Lawrence and his wife Frieda lived in Thirroul, New South Wales. The other was the poetry of 'Ern Malley', a pseudonym created in 1943 by the poets James McAuley and Harold Stewart, who cobbled together some poems one afternoon, picking words and phrases at random, and sent them as a hoax to the poet Max Harris for publication in the journal Angry Penguins.

"The Fifth Continent, The Queen and The Ern Malley Suite mark a most remarkable act of collaboration between the composer and the artist. Working from similar sources of inspiration, but quite independently of one another, Peter Sculthorpe has created amazingly evocative passages of music and Garry Shead has created three series of paintings which have become iconic in Australian visual culture. The collaboration involved the bringing together of the pre-existing music and images, juxtaposing them with some of the original literary sources that inspired them. What is truly astonishing is that when these disparate elements were brought together, they combined seamlessly into a single creative whole."
