JON CATTAPAN features in ‘Velocity’, a new exhibition curated by the Drill Hall Gallery’s director Terence Maloon, formerly the distinguished curator of special exhibitions at the Art Gallery of NSW
The exhibition is reviewed by The Australian and The Canberra Times
“Jon Cattapan has been an artist who has long engaged with the urban surreal. His images of submerged cities, people appearing through night vision goggles, and the constant overlay of tiers of electronic surveillance and of information systems, have all been central to his practice. His paintings, including Imagine a raft (hard rubbish no. 1), 2011, present an image which is accessible, but simultaneously also mysterious and hinting at a different level of existence.” Sasha Grishin
JON CATTAPAN interviewed on ABC RADIO, Books and Arts Daily, which explores the many worlds of performance, writing, music and visual arts, and features interviews with local and international authors and artists. Presenter Michael Cathcart interviews the artist in conjunction with the launch of AUSTRALIAN ART: A HISTORY by historian Sasha Grishin.
JON CATTAPAN, 'Monotypes', is showing at SCUOLA INTERNAZIONALE DI GRAFICA, VENICE 18 – 29 March, 2014.
In this exhibition held during his residency at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica, the artist imagines and records through monotypes, a series of figurative explorations very loosely based around dream-like encounters of a nocturnal Venice.
