John Citizen is the pseudonym of the artist Gordon Bennett; a name chosen to suggest Mr Average – the Australian Everyman of no stated colour or creed. Working under this name rather than his own allowed Bennett to experiment and indulge in other streams of thought in his multi-disciplinary practice. It served as a counterpoint to Gordon Bennett, his ‘other’, and yet they are one and the same.
