John’s practice has been consistent, ongoing, and persistent as he has pursued various genres, and experimented with various medium since 1996. He has tried just about everything that can be done in painting, from translucent thin washes on canvas to the integration of 3d objects on board. He has drawn, sculpted, and made sculpture installations and camera based art but I am known as a painter. His process involves both experimentation and inner search.
John has shown his work in commercial and public galleries in a local, national, and international context.
Over the past 23 years he has created a diverse and massive amount of work, having dedicated his life to his practice, therefore making life style, work, and study choices that align with his practice. As a consequence he has an extensive exhibition record and have sought out areas of study that coincide with the process and content found in his work including the completion of a master’s degree and thesis.
Presently, his research and artistic practice is still essentially about human consciousness and dialogue with material. However, recently, he has been drawn to the use of abstraction as a means of connecting with the divine despite existing in a secular and post modern society.
