Sydney-based Aboriginal artist Jonathan Jones, a member of the Wiradjuri and Kamilaroi nations of south-east Australia, works across a range of mediums, from printmaking and drawing to sculpture and film. He creates site-specific installations and interventions into space that use light and the repetition of shape and materiality to explore Indigenous practices, relationships and ideas. Jonathan was created for use with Jones’ art installation untitled (the tyranny of distance) and is a response to the repeating angular chevron forms found in the work. The chevrons are derived from elements of traditional Koori (South Eastern Aboriginal) line work and resonate with Western minimalism.
