Jarrad Martyn @ Turner Galleries

Event Title: The Golden State.
Participating Artists: Jarrad Martyn.

Venue: Turner Galleries,
470 William Street, Northbridge.

Description: The Golden State

The Golden State, by Jarrad Martyn explores three events from Western
Australian history, the 1950s Montebello nuclear testing, the Barnett
government shark cull and the dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point in

Building upon the cultural cringe, Martyn uses collage and painting to
unpack and re-arrange the meaning of the events, creating landscapes that
slip in-between the real and the imagined to question our interaction and
history with the landscape.

Jarrad Martyn is an emerging Western Australia artist. He completed his
Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at Curtin University with a focus on
painting and drawing.
