‘Painter John Waller digs deep into the most inhospitable of Antipodean landscapes to capture the terror and beauty of nature.

‘Painter John Waller digs deep into the most inhospitable of Antipodean landscapes to capture the terror and beauty of nature.

From the flat, dry plains of the Mallee, the drought-ridden expanses of his childhood between the Murray River and South-Western New South Wales and the semi-arid desert landscapes of Central Australia, he unearths rich seams of luscious and evocative colour and excavates the vastness of its spatial qualities.

From the outset Waller has worked in the language of abstraction – counterpointed blocks of colour, sweeping earthy glazes, a minimalist layering and stripping back process, occasionally mixing media and materials with a degree of seamless virtuosity.’
