Jon Cattapan
Retrospective in Melbourne


The Melbourne-based painter Jon Cattapan has a retrospective exhibition covering his last 30 years of work called The Drowned World currently on at The Ian Potter Museum of Art at the University of Melbourne. Jon graciously allowed my use of his painting Case for the cover of my book Dear Deliria in early 2003. I'll be making a trip to Melbourne to see this show some time before it closes on 6th August.
For more on Jon Cattapan visit Sutton Gallery in Melbourne and Kaliman Gallery in Sydney.

Very creative and looks very time consuming. Your artwork is different than others. Pleasingly it makes me really have to look into the images you create to see your finer detail. One of my fav's would have to be The Melbpourne Panels oil on linen made in 2003. Almost like the midnight lighting of the night life and silent sounds. Thanks enjoying your work. kj
