South Australian artist Jake Holmes works across a variety of mediums, including screenprinting, mural painting, illustration, audio and collage. Through his creative practice, Holmes interrogates contemporary social and political issues, and documents place.
Holmes has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across Australia. Notable projects include Propaganda with the Australian War Memorial at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Victoria (2018), the C’mon Aussie C’mon Australia-wide poster campaign (2015), and South Australia Illustrated with the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide (2012). Holmes has undertaken several public art commissions in Australia and residencies in Darwin, Northern Territory and Rajasthan, India. His work is held in the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Australian War Memorial, Canberra; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; and private collections both nationally and internationally.
The Guildhouse Collections Project with Flinders University Museum of Art provides artists with the opportunity to engage the Museum’s collections and staff to create new work for exhibition.
