Jon Cattapan 'The Spaces of and Between’ at Rockhampton Art Gallery

22nd Aug 2018

Jon Cattapan’s solo exhibition The Spaces of and Between opens this Friday 24 August at Rockhampton Art Gallery. The exhibition depicts urban topographies and the way human beings claim territory.  Through the lens of surveillance and conflict, Cattapan's vistas and their ‘hard waste’ detritus also invoke questions around the makeshift nature of contemporary urban life and its fluid sociology. For the first time these paintings have been brought together with additional works made as a result of his experience in Timor Leste as the 63rd official Australian War Artist. Which included a suite of haunting night vision photographic images recorded on night patrols.

The exhibition runs until 25 November.
