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
