Hear No Evil/See No Evil - Locust Jones

Established Blue Mountains artist Locust Jones works in his studio listening to the news transcribing the horrors of humanity into his paintings. He juxtaposes the everyday onslaught of atrocities with the absurdity of popular culture news. This exhibition of works on paper features many straight from the artist’s studio or not previously exhibited in Australia.

Hear No Evil/See No Evil reframes Jones’ well known practice through the lens of the viewer experience. We are invited to participate in the unravelling of reason in our over-populated media where Tehran riots and Michael Jackson’s heart attack receive equal news time. Rather than critiquing the media itself the exhibition questions how we make sense, understand and prioritise the overwhelming import of world news. With so much competing information is it possible to even hear, see or feel the atrocities that go on around the world?
