The Artists

Lucas Ihlein and Allan Yeomans, with the Yeomans Carbon Still at Monash University Museum of Art, February 2019

Lucas Ihlein’s projects explore the relationship between socially engaged art, agriculture and environmental management. Major exhibitions include Sugar vs the Reef? (with Kim Williams), Artspace Mackay (2018-19); The Yeomans Project (with Ian Milliss), Art Gallery of New South Wales (2013-14); In the Balance: Art for a Changing World, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2010). In 2010 Lucas completed a PhD at Deakin University which won the Alfred Deakin Medal for best Doctoral Thesis in Humanities and Social Sciences. In 2015 he was awarded an Australia Council for the Arts Fellowship for Emerging and Experimental Arts. He is currently an ARC DECRA Research Fellow at University of Wollongong, Australia, and a student at Kandos School of Cultural Adaptation (KSCA).

Allan Yeomans is the Managing Director of the Yeomans Plow Co, and author of the book PRIORITY ONE: Together We Can Beat Global Warming  (2005). Allan’s main concern for the last 30 years has been the prevention of global warming and the halting of climate change. He sees this as the most urgent problem facing humanity this century.  His invention of the Yeomans Carbon Still aims to contribute to the collective effort to draw down greenhouse gases from the atmosphere using agricultural soils as a carbon sink.
