Jonathan Dalton: This brutal, muted serenity

November 17, 2021 - November 27, 2021

Jonathan Dalton, A Goldfish tunes into the BBC World Service, 2021. Oil on linen, 122 x 138cm. Courtesy: the artist and Nanda\Hobbs, Sydney.

Dalton’s latest exhibition, This brutal, muted serenity, posits the idea that man is able to contain nature—inevitably to its detriment. While artists such as Turner depicted man dwarfed by tumultuous, seemingly infinite seas, Dalton takes a more restrained approach and serves up the ‘man versus nature’ interplay in the microcosm of the fishbowl—the ultimate viewing vessel. Here, Dalton distils this complex relationship into elemental forms, allowing the viewer to question society’s insatiable demand for commodities and consider its implications for the natural world.

Exhibition Opening Drinks and Artist Talk—Saturday 20 November, 1-4pm. Artist Talk at 2pm
