Storrier's landscapes are constructed from memories and familiar everyday objects, located in desolate and barren settings. In the present work the tank 'is constructed on an intimate scale out of the same red bricks that epitomise Australian suburbia. But if these structures are built out of familiar materials, their form is foreign. They have an abandoned quality to them. Not as if they were once inhabited and then deserted – they are not derelict – but as if they have never been occupied.' (C. Lumby, Tim Storrier: The Art of the Outsider, Sydney, 2000, p.31).
