Summary:
"Jon Cattapan: possible histories will trace Cattapan's art from his student days to the present. Beginning with the Dadaist grotesquerie and surrealist erotica of Melbourne's 1970s punk scene, it traces Cattapan's psychic themes of isolation and longing into later explorations of postmodern cities and global information flows. These culminate in the artist's efforts to reintroduce a political consciousness into his art. Using 'slow information' - the laborious task of painting - he makes painting a way of a thinking, processing and reinvesting ethical positions into art."--Provided by publisher.
