Jon Plapp

Last updated September 18, 2012


Jon Plapp, whose geometric, soft edge paintings have been collected by art institutions in Canada and America, began to identify seriously as a painter at the age of forty in Toronto.

Plapp made frequent visits to the Mirvish Gallery and gained a strongly felt appreciation of the work of the colour field painters, sometimes known as second generation New York abstraction. In Sydney since 1977, Plapp has long shown at Watters Gallery where a survey exhibition took place in 1976.

Acrylic on canvas.
Acquired by the judge, Janet Laurence, from the 2006 Award.
