Dire Contact is a continuation of Jacob Boylan’s exploration of his experience of contemporary Australia. Guided by the restrictions of found imagery Jacob attempts to navigate his way through cliché’s, hypocrisies, stereotypes and everyday banalities of Australian society. 

In Dire Contact he has especially focused on the subtleties of our multi-faceted “national identity”, asking the audience to prod past their initial impressions and look deeper into what the images represent. 

Jacob has also experimented with materials often associated with the worksite, such as silicon, house paint, found marine ply and wall bog, mixing them with paper collage and screen printing. An ode to the overwhelming working-middle class of this country.
