John Caldwell: New Paintings
03 - 18 November 2012
The primary focus of Caldwell's work is the natural Australian landscape where there is little or no evidence of human presence.
Caldwell is an explorer of the Australian Landscape with brush, paint and paper. Constantly revisiting the source, seeking to render the individual, and ultimate, essence of colour and light that is completely identifiable with the bush and outback of Australia.
