JONATHAN DALTON "THE SUBTLE ART OF THEATRICAL REALISM: A TEN-YEAR SURVEY" — ON SHOW AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE GALLERY

17 July 2023

Since moving to Australia 10 years ago, Irish-born artist, Jonathan Dalton has explored many playful thematic directions through his practice. Throughout this period, Dalton has imbued his work with delicate observations, nuanced drama, and subtle symbolism. This approach has characterised the beguiling portraiture work he is known for as a six-time Archibald finalist. Signature works from the last decade of Dalton's career have been loaned to this exhibition, which runs until 2 September.

"...throughout my work there has always been an air of stillness. It was perhaps inevitable that my journey as an artist would come to rely more and more on the still-life as a means to condense a tale from the most subtle vapors of narrative suggestion..." Jonathan Dalton

The exhibition launched at the University of Newcastle Gallery on 14 July, followed by a special event for the unveiling of the University Chancellor’s portrait and a conversation with Jonathan Dalton and Ralph Hobbs on 15 July.
