Jason’s multi-disciplinary practice brings together a wide range of, sometimes contradictory, references from traditional ink paintings and calligraphy to mass-produced objects, everyday vernacular to official records, personal narratives to historical events. Working across drawing, installation, painting and performance, he frequently uses humour as a device to explore experiences of cultural dislocation.
In 2018, he showed in the Dobell Drawing Biennale at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, The Burrangong Affray at the 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Primavera 2018 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
Jason's next solo at Chalk Horse Gallery, will be a series of paintings titled “I wake up from my midday naps with a terrible thirst”. The exhibition will open Thursday Feb 28 from 6 - 8pm.
"Angela Tiatia's 'The Fall' is one of my favourite video works, and marks a new trajectory for her. Her imaginative, surreal, abstract interpretations of the Fall of Singapore (1942) is exactly what contemporary art should be. I can't wait to see her new work at Sullivan+Strumpf in March!"

"Hayley is able to meld together the alternate/untold/abstract truths of the landscape through her family archives, and as a Gunditjmara woman, through the history of her people. She does this in the most subtle and sublime ways, and in ways more in touch with reality than the contorted lenses most of us see the land through."

"I worked with John on some of his etchings and lithographs in my time at Cicada Press and got to see some of his working process. He works so fast, but everything he makes has such well defined composition and meaning.

"I love Cyrus's work, especially her cremated book series. it's the sort of work that makes you slow down and actually create a connection. it is nostalgic and speaks of loss and remembrance but without all the cliches. a beautiful work."
