Marc de Jong’s latest works consist of a series of oil paintings which reference the Australian landscape in all its forms, from a homage to Namatjira and the Hermannsburg School (Rivergum) to the familiar urban landscape.

de Jong’s paintings appropriate a range of images collected from the internet, television and newspapers and he has referred to his creative output as ‘media dreaming’ and ‘culture jamming’. Throughout his practice de Jong sources familiar images from both popular culture and earlier eras, such as 19th century etchings and traditional landscape paintings. He then reprocesses these pixilated images, using a painting technique that is intricate and labour intensive, some paintings taking many months to complete. But doing so de Jong opposes the short-term values of what he calls “the global media flux of the instant”
