Cartoons by Jason Phu
This series of cartoons explores the intersection between art and politics. Jason Phu is a Sulman Prize-winning artist. His work explores tradition and profanity, crossing the mundane with the absurd. In this suite, he draws on Philip Guston's famous exploration of Nixon's presidency, the series Poor Richard, creating for Malcolm Turnbull a character of persistent haplessness. In Phu's hands, Turnbull is buffeted by the conventions of cartooning, trapped by Phu's impoverished line, unable to make sense or give sense. His travails are endless, dislocated, like scenes from a myth or a Chan Buddhist story or a Looney Tunes episode.
