About the Artist
John Pratt is a graphic artist working across a range of media including printmaking, collage, drawing, artist books and projections in Public Space. Through a series of exhibitions he has been exploring the impact of human presence within a range of natural landscapes and constructed environments. These landscapes or sites have ranged from National Parks in the ACT to southern coastal zones through suburbia to the street scapes of the CBD. In each case the focus has explored the interchange of our existence and the physical space that surrounds us – we impact on the environment and in turn we are determined by it. As part of this research and creative output he has also worked as a senior lecturer in the Printmedia and Drawing Department at the ANU School of Art. Over that period he has exhibited regularly including 15 Solo Exhibitions and participated in an extensive range of Group Exhibitions.
