Gag Projects will soon be hosting a solo show by Jon Cattapan, titled “The City Submerged No.27”, from October 4, 2017.
The exhibition showcases a collection of new works by the artist from his latest series that comprise of works created in different places, at different times, but always referring back to a loosely connected set of nocturnal urban reflections. The creation process for these set of paintings began in 1991 when the artist was inspired by Ballard’s vision of ‘The Drowned World’. Ballard looked at the post-apocalyptic world in a way which can be said now is a reflection on our own world, not our own world as it was then, but our own world to come. Similarly, Cattapan created paintings that were a reflection not of the future but of the present. Jon Cattapan is a visual artist who at present lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. known for panoramic layered city vistas and figurative groupings, the artist has extensively exhibited at various galleries across Australia. His works have also been acquired by the collections of all Australian State museums and many regional galleries including the National Gallery of Australia, The National Gallery of Victoria, The Art Gallery of New South Wales, The Gallery of Modern Art/Queensland Art Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
The exhibition will be on view through October 29, 2017, at Gag Projects, 39 Rundle Street, Kent Town, 5067, Australia.
