Jack Caddy


Jack Caddy is an emerging artist living in Perth, whose practice is concerned with the potential for online communities to create material change. Taking the recognisable corners of digital culture and relishing in its soon to be stale ‘nowness.’ Caddy glorifies the general aesthetic of mass mediated images by exploring how consumption can be an act of communion in the cultivation of ourselves. After finishing a Bachelor of Fine Art from Curtin University (2017) he has exhibited work with Moana Project Space for Hobiennale, WA (2017), Sister Gallery SA (2018), and Cool Change Contemporary, WA (2019).


Kaya. We acknowledge the Whadjuk People of Boorloo boodja who are the traditional owners of the land where Semaphore is made. We respect their culture, their custodianship, and their continuing contribution to the life of this city and this region. That includes recognising and respecting sovereignty while working in solidarity towards a treaty and supporting ongoing connection to country. That means linguistic rights, economic opportunity, and artistic endeavour. To their Elders, past, present and emerging, we say thanks.
