John Cato Retrospective


During his lifetime Australian photographer John Cato kept out of the limelight and abhorred celebrity. Cato died in 2011, after a long battle with emphysema, and the extent of his body of work is only now coming to light thanks to two of Cato’s longtime friends, filmmaker Paul Cox and photographer Bryan Gracey. The pair have curated the collection of the ‘John Cato Retrospective’ which focuses on his landscape work.  Cato’s landscapes are reminiscent of abstract paintings, with nature providing the canvas. Flows of water in the silt of riverbanks become etchings; the peeling bark of trees appear as splashes of paint; the reflections of foliage on still ponds make intricate patterns, creating a rich visual tapestry.
