Jonathan Jones: Works on Paper 2010 - 2019
|Author||Genevieve O'callaghan Ed.|
Presented for the first time in a single survey, these sensitive works discuss the histories, textures, and patterns of south-east Australia and celebrate Jonathan Jones as one of the country’s foremost contemporary indigenous artists. By grounding his projects in research and working closely with local communities to relate their stories, Jones illustrates Aboriginal perspectives on culture, identity, and country. With a custom typeface and stripped of traditional formalities, the book offers a quiet, deconstructed experience of the artist’s work alongside texts by leading Aboriginal elders, authors, and artists in an analysis of Australia’s cultural relationship with its complex history.
