Object Detail


Description
Putting on a show, van Zon takes the familiar or the recognisable and renders it slightly funny and wrong. Her loving parodies and crooked translations are tenderly made and although awkward her appropriations are always studied and thoughtful. Examining shared visual cultures with nostalgia as well as a sense of the ridiculous, van Zon creates little touching tributes, quiet homages that are striking, imperfect and delightful.

Newtown Sandwich is a nod to the working class icon and authentically kitsch signage of Newtown Bakery, corner of Riddiford and Constables Streets.
