A BIT ON
- Jacob Boylan hits Newcastle with his unique look at Australian culture.
Last night we celebrated the opening of Jacob Boylan's first Newcastle solo exhibition, 'A Bit On'
“A Bit On” is an amalgamation of ideas affected by lived events in Australia over the last year. It is a combining of a few different trains of thought, a collection of small series’.
The disastrous floods on the east coast, specifically in the Northern Rivers play a major part in the works included in this exhibition. The lino prints are made with actual pieces of lino ripped up from the floors of a heritage home in Murwillumbah.
All of the imagery and most of the materials in this show are found. They act as a direct and real reflection of who we are as a nation.
