This series seeks to suggest a portrait of Ballarat through its transitory and mundane aspects. My hope is to offer an alternate perspective of the historic city, to encourage reflection and an awareness of the subtitles that go unnoticed, and potentially instil a clearer vision of Ballarat.
Jon Setter was born in Detroit, Michigan (1989) and is based in Sydney, Australia. He graduated with an MFA from The National Art School, Sydney in 2018. Setter’s work is produced as part of an ongoing exploration that attempts to reveal the unseen aspects that shape how we experience and understand urban spaces. He has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is represented by galleries in Australia and globally.
