2011-2013 Jan Cleveringa
"Power Tool Paintings"
Cleveringa is interested in the idea of culture as a shared experience between people. He sees his painting as act of sharing, digesting, and reproducing cultural experiences into something that is refashioned and new.
His current work is about the symbols and signs of ‘male-ness’ in the context of Australian identity. The text that is incorporated are words invoked from Australian culture. These works are about the semiotics behind Australian Identity.
