About the artist
Jack Featherstone is a 91-year-old visual artist who lives on the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales. Although he commenced his practice in 1950 exploring the moving image, in 1966 Jack began working with oil paints. His first solo show was at the Willoughby Arts Centre, Sydney, in 1975; he had another solo show, curated by Nigel Lendon, at the Canberra School of Art in 2010. His work is held in a number of private collections. Recently, due to becoming allergic to oil paints, Jack begun working with acrylics.
