In 1972, Absalom made a trip to the Flinders Ranges with a group of artists. Although he had never painted before, he felt a great urge to paint the landscape and a natural talent was discovered. He was one of the members of the Brushmen of the Bush – a group of five artists who exhibited for many years in Australia and all over the world raising money for charity. In April 1997, he opened his gallery in Broken Hill which showcased his oil paintings, prints, publications, DVDs and his opal collection. Each year Absalom went into the Australian outback for two months to paint.
