ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This exhibition explores the relationship between man, animals and the land. A tribute to the beautiful Australian countryside and the animals who inhabit it.
With a background in film and television, arts management and marketing, John has been engaged in creative pursuits for his entire career. Although he didn’t start to exhibit his work until 2012, he has always been passionate about painting. John loves strong colour and texture and his work has been described as expressionistic and painterly.
He stages at least one solo exhibition each year and his subject matter changes regularly. John finds himself drawn to diverse themes and areas of interest however flowers and animals are reoccurring themes. His work often has dramatic lighting and can be quite theatrical at times.
Based in Sydney, Australia, John works from a home studio that he built in his attic. It is a quirky, light-filled space with lovely tree-top views - a great place to spend time creating art. He favours painting in acrylic, because of the quick drying time, vibrant colours as well as the textural quality.
John has been selected as a finalist in the Mosman, Hornsby, Lane Cove and Northbridge Art prizes to name a few. His paintings are held in private collections in Italy, France, Germany, USA and throughout Australia.
We hope you can make it!
